If you take one of the Trams it crosses the Garonne River via Pont de Pierre so you get to see the bridge up close and better you get the view from the bridge which was nice.

A long bridge crossing the Garonne in Bordeaux, near the Porte de Bourgogne and Porte Calihou. It is a good place to photograph the river and Bordeaux buildings looking downstream. It has tramlines in the centre of the bridge that reduces road traffic to a...More
