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 photographic opportunities - See Bordeaux's beautiful skyline from the other side of the river! Magic.

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 been cleaned up considerably with new developments.

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 for a letter of his name. A bridge with striking lights and panoramic views. Worth the walk.

Very picturesque bridge over the Garonne river. The views from both sides of the river are panoramic and on one side, you can see one of the church steeples. When we were there on a July morning, it was very cloudy and overcast and my photos didin't really come out great.

From what i know, Napoleon ordered the building of the bridge. It has a nice architecture, you could see similar motives on other bridges in France.
