It makes for a lovely walk after dinner - we went on foot one way up to where the lion is, and then took a tram back to our hotel which was near St Katherine's street. Makes for some really nice pictures in night time, and the old style street lamps on the bridge take you into a different century!

If you cross the bridge you can take beautiful pictures of the old city. Take a bike or enjoy the walk, and then enjoy a nice beer on the other side :)

So we had not ventured across the river and decided to take the tram over to see Bordeaux from across the river. Explored the Right Bank for a few hours and decided to walk back. Really a different perspective than the tram. A bit of weather going on, and one could really see the strength of the flow of the... More

Perhaps prettier at night. An amazing architectural work and lovely site to see in Bordeaux. It´s pretty long, but offers great views of the city.

Crossing the bridge is really nice. You can take the tram A to the next station after the bridge, look at the big Lion scupture, and then walk back towards the city center, and get a great view on the quais and old buildings. You can walk there from the train station but you'll need about 20 minutes then.

This is an impressive bridge over the Garonne, whose construction was ordered by Napoleon I ("First Empire") but which was built slightly later. The views from the bridge are breathtaking, and the bridge itself a great example of the Napoleonic architecture which is evident all along the quayside. We have crossed the bridge by tram several times, coming into the... More

A must for all visitors to Bordeaux! Cross this beautiful bridge during the day and in the evening. For avid walkers start at Pont de Pierre & walk along the river (on either side) to the new bridge "Le Pont Jacques Chaban Delmas" returning on the opposite side of the Garonne. The round trip will take Apx. 2hrs with great... More

Pretty Napoleonic bridge connecting the Bourse area with Place Stalingrad. Best use is to park under the bridge on the side opposite Bordeaux near Stalingrad and walk across to the city, saving fighting the traffic that can clog up the Quay. Some good restaurants on that side as well, such as Café du Port and L'Estecade, and that bank has... More

The river front at Bordeaux is wonderful for a long walk. For us, the final good bit was crossing the bridge,and pausing in the middle to admire the spectacular view - it's truly magnificant. On a boat trip on the Garonne, which incidentally is worth every penny, we learned that the bridge was ordered by Napoleon, and each arch is... More

This bridge, built by Napoleon III, has decorative stonework and pretty wrought-iron lamps. You can walk across it and back, but there's nothing happening on the bridge itself.
