Pont Neuf

Study the intriguing pointed pillars on the river and relax on the grassy knoll of the park beside this iconic bridge. 

Among the principal emblems of the city, the Pont Neuf is an impressive 16th-century bridge that stretches across the Garonne River in Toulouse. It is 720 feet (220 meters) long, with seven arches of varying sizes that give the bridge an asymmetrical appearance. Stroll between the trees along the riverbanks for the best views of the structure.  

Snap photos from a variety of angles for a better understanding of the aesthetics and dimensions of the bridge, which has survived several centuries. It has an unusual design, with platforms pointing into the river below its imposing pillars. 

Walk along the length of the bridge and enjoy the excellent views of the Garonne River as it meanders through the center of the city. You can also cycle or jog along the wide sidewalks.

Take a relaxing break on the well-kept mound of grass of the Prairie des Filtres park, which flanks the river between the Pont Neuf and its southern counterpart, the Pont Saint-Michel. The park area has a fun and relaxed ambiance and is popular with students. Stay here for the sunset and admire the view of the bridge, as it becomes a silhouette against the darkening sky. Marvel at the colorful undersides of the illuminated arches at night. 

Note that the bridge, which is free to access at all times, is also known as the Pont de Pierre and the Grand Pont. Despite dating back to the 1500s, Pont Neuf is French for New Bridge, so-called for its comparison to an older bridge that once stood beside it.

The Pont Neuf crosses the Garonne River in the downtown district of Toulouse. Ride the metro to the Esquirol station and walk west for a few minutes to get to the bridge. You can also arrive at the Saint-Cyprien-République metro stop on the western side of the river. 

See some of the other nearby sights, such as the Château d’Eau, the Museum of the History of Medicine and the Notre-Dame de la Daurade Basilica.
