A very picturesque bridge, I would recommend crossing from Place de la Bourse to the North Bank (Place Stalingrad). There is a safe cycle lane on the pavement which makes hiring a 'Vcub' bike a great idea and gives you the option of cycling up the river bank and crossing Pont Chaban-Delmas to complete the loop back to Place de...

It must be the most beautiful and oldest bridge in Bordeaux. Never forget to take a picture of it, otherwise it is regretful later ...

If you travel into Bordeaux from the right bank, early on a sunny morning you will be rewarded with the most beautiful view of the Pont de Pierre and the incredible 18th century buildings opposite.

It is well worth walking across le Pont de Pierre, not least for the views from it and from the right bank. The bridge has 17 arches (the number of letters in Napoleon Bonaparte) and is a very attractive structure, both during the day and when lit up at night.

Excellent sight, both from the bridge to the city and the opposite, specially at night. Moreover, a good choice to lengthen your workout by running/cycling to the other side of the river.

After walking across the bridge twice (we parked on the other side of the city) we found the bridge and the view enjoyable. The light rail rumbling past and the river flowing underneath makes for a romantic stroll. However, we also drove across and would not recommend it - the traffic is slow and being single lane makes for a... More

It was build under the orders of Napoleon I, the first French emperor. Its construction took three years (1819 – 1822) with over 4,000 workers. The builders had to use a... More

Had looked forward to walking across this bridge from the moment we saw it in guides & on internet, the reality was a little disappointing. it is extremely busy at any time of day traffic in both directions & tram tracks up the middle. To get it's beauty best seen from a boat on the river

I didn't count how many arches were on this but there are a lot. And with its fabulous lamps, the bridge is beautiful day or night.
