We caught the A tram over the bridge, then walked back. It is a beautiful bridge and you get a lovely view of Le Bourse as you walk toward the city.

This bridge offers a great view of the city, especially late in the evening. At that time there is less traffic. The panoramic view of the city from the other side of the river is very beautiful.

We walked by the bridge a couple of times during our one night stay in Bordeaux. There are few bridges in the world worth seeing and this one falls under the "If you have seen one bridge in your life...you have seen them all" category. P.S. The murky water doesn't help matters...

People who claim this is "just another bridge" are perhaps missing the point. It's huge! It puts in perspective just how wide the river is. Very beautiful stone bridge.

As bridges go it is quite nice with its 17 arches to represent the laters in Napoleon Bonepart's name. But its not Charle's Bridge in Prague or even Tower Bridge.

crossing over the bridge can take you to the other side of Bordeaux. if you don't want to visit the other side, then walk till the middle of the bridge! it is still memorable to appreciate the Garonne river.

Commissioned by Napoleon. Typical stone bridge with arches illuminated at night in an attractive way offering great views over the city and connecting rives gauche et droite.
