This is a lovely bridge - and nice on both sides of the river. Getting bikes and doing the circuit crossing Pont Jacques Chaban Delmas, Pont de Pierre and stopping at the Miroir D'eau highly recommended. It's a super easy cycle on designated paths the whole way; easy for kids too.

We drove over this on our way into Bordeaux, and later went for a walk onto it. A pleasant bridge, with good views down the river.

As a Portlander, I felt at home in Bordeaux, despite the lack of mountains. It's a city of bridges, too, and they have an interesting way of framing views of the city on either side. Pont de Pierre is long and low, but that's right. It had no need to be any higher than necessary when built, and it feels... More

It's hard to miss this bridge, which spans a very wide section of a very wide river. Low slung, it's hardly a stunner, but must have been an achievement in the early 19th century. I took a few photographs of it from a distance, and should have walked out on it, as I'm sure it would have offered excellent views... More

Take a walk across the bridge to get a different perspective on Bordeaux, especially at night. The bridge has 17 arches - one for each letter of Napoleon Bonaparte's name (so the story goes).

Go at around 9:30 at night, walk slowly as the light of the churches, the buildings and finally the bridge turn on, quite lovely especially at sunset. Great place to jog or bike ride as well! Remember if all the walking is an issue, the tram is very easy to take to all the different sites! Buy one ticket with... More

A stone bridge from 1810 connecting two banks and allowing Bordeaux to expand. Interesting to see, but nothing special to do with.

You can bike easily along the Garonne from the bridge Chaban Delmas, most recent and modern, to the bridge Pont de Pierre, oldest one, introducing you in the old city by the best way : street "rue des Faures" (recently renoved so biking there is now a real pleasure !) near from Basilique St Michel. What is new ? On... More

Whsn visiting Bordeaux crossing the Pont Pierre is a must. Even on the blustery cold day in January when I vsited the views were spectacular. And taking the tram back to the centre of town gives one a chance to see it all agai .
