Another good walk

There are a lot of interesting places to walk in Bordeaux, and this is one of them, also gives a good view of the estuary

The bridge is beautiful especially at night with all the lights as you don't see the muddy Garonne underneath. A good point of view is the Mirror fountain.

It is well worth walking across the Pont de Pierre to get a great view of Bordeaux (including the Place de la Bourse), and when you get to the other side the view is even more expansive. This stone arched bridge, built by Napoleon Bonaparte, stretches 487 m over the Garonne River and has 17 arches (thought to represent each... More

A walk across the bridge gives you the opportunity for a spectacular view of the city from the opposite site. This experience worth even the day or the night.

On a river cruise, we could only get through the bridge to visit Cadillac at very low tides. It was fun to see the approach through one of the narrow arches, with just a foot or two to spare on the sides. We had ridden bikes across earlier--there is a nice bike trail that goes from this bridge all the... More

Lovely bridge to look at. Built during the Napoleonic era, it presents a nice highlight to views of the Garonne.
