Pont de Pierre

Pont de Pierre, Bordeaux, France, 33000

The basics

The red-stone bridge consists of 17 spans–the exact number of letters in the name Napoléon Bonaparte–lined with elegant iron light posts. Each of the bridge’s pillars is capped by a medallion to honor both the emperor and Bordeaux’s coat of arms. While plenty of bicycle and walking tours will take you across or near the bridge, you’ll get the best photo ops if you sign up for a Garonne River cruise.
