If you go to Toulouse, you must walk along the Garonne river. There are paths that go quite a way either upstream or downstream from the Pont Neuf. The bridge itself is beautiful, especially at night, when it's lit up, but can be admired in all weathers and under all skies.

This bridge does exactly what you want it to do: get you over the water! At the river level there are benches where you can have a seat and a bottle of wine on a nice sunny day. Good architecture!

We walked along the river and crossed higher up to observe the wonderful view across the river of toulouse and this enabled us to take photographs of the bridge all made so much more enjoyable by the sun shining

So, yes, the bridge is every bit as pretty as all the reviewers say, but what really sends it over the top is the all the interpretive signage along the river walk that explains what you see and can no longer see. Yes, this is the new bridge but, most remarkably, the abutment for the "old" early medieval bridge can... More

It's 17th century old rather than new but remains of an even older bridge can be seen - joining an old port which has been restored as a park with a former hospital on the other side of the Garonne river. At night it is finely floodlit and the walk along the bank is a wonderful experience.

Comparing to Pont Neuf over the river Seine in Paris, it is smaller and shorter. But the view of the vicinity is very attractive. Along the river there are a lot of cafes and pubs where you can enjoy a glass of wine or beer with your company. It is the must-see place to visit if you are in Toulouse.

It is called the new bridge but it is the most old remain bridge in Town. Very photogenic, it will help you doing real nice photos. The view over Garonne is amazing. Don't miss it!

The Pont Neuf (New Bridge), aka Pont de Pierre and Grand Pont, isn't very "Neuf" as it was completed in 1632 and inaugurated in 1659. It is not symmetrical; the longest arch is the third from the right-hand bank and the openings through the piers were originally supposed to represent the face and mane of a lion. It is 220m...

The Pont Neuf was built in the 16th century, and as you cross it you get an excellent view of Toulouse and of the river. Well worth strolling over.
