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.

I wish the USA would value real estate meant for public enjoyment as much as European cities like Bordeaux do. The Pont is huge, and enjoyed by those on bikes, foot, roller skates, inline skates, skateboards, strollers, and trams, cars and buses. Just a lovely spot for people-watching and loving life.

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.

The Pont Pierre consists of many uniform arches across the mighty Garonne River and its bricks & masonry have been restored to perfection, complementing the stone buildings on the city centre (west bank) side.The great old bridge is enhanced by its black railings between the piers and what appear to be retro Belle Epoque style street lamps also painted black...

This Bridge is impressive: the first thing you think about it is that it's impressive due to its solid and big structure. Once you realize how much big is the Garonne, you'll see it like a "normal" bridge. pont de Pierre is beautifull at any time during the day, night included thanks to the lighs it has. It's simply great,... More

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.
