Stunning
Feb 2020 • Family
This is a beautiful town, although this is one of the best places to view it from. Absolutely stunning vista.
Glorious on a sunny day.

Iconic Bridge
Dec 2019
This is one of the most iconic sites in town. It's all over the post cards. Best seen from up on the hill by the cathedral. Just lovely.

Iconic Site
Sep 2019
This is the famous site of the region, the one that appears on all of the post cards. You can see it from various angles. We saw it from up on the esplanade by the cathedral and it was lovely.

Great photo spot
Sep 2019 • Couples
Great shots of the castle, river and pedestrian bridge combined. Google wanted us to drive over, but instead, park near the pedestrian bridge and walk from the old town across the river. Parking was free there.

Beautiful old bridge & view to the St Nazaire Cathedral
Jan 2019
We easily found a park on the street across the bridge and walked through the Garden Emile Ain (free to access). Overlooking the Amphitheatre, it was a very peaceful place to stop & reflect on the sad brutal history of Beziers. The view of the city & Cathedral on the hill is quite stunning.

Better bridge for being car-free
Jul 2019 • Couples
Work is still on-going in the conversion of this bridge from a one-way street to pedestrian-only. It's not that wide, so trying to walk over it with cars going past, albeit in one direction only, must have been a bit worrying. Signs seem to suggest that quite a lot of money has been poured into the preservation of this old landmark; money well spent in my opinion. An opinion shared, probably, by the fisherman we saw, every morning, with multiple lines dangling over the edge. Never saw him catch anything though.

Beautiful old bridge.

Lucky enough to be staying in a room that overlooked this bridge. Watched fishermen trying to catch fish from the bridge. Lit up at night.

Charming old bridge
Jul 2019 • Family
Great to see such an old bridge still functioning!
Delighted that traffic no longer use the bridge an pedestrian can leisurely walk across the bridge and admire the river Orb below
Possible to fish from bridge
Lovely newly built play park suitable for young children and teens across the bridge - close to Rue Pierre Puget extra 5 mins walk!- good excuse to explore historic heritage and reward children with visit to a lovely play park!

Old bridge
Jun 2019 • Couples
Pont Vieux and Pont Neuf are the two main old bridges over The River Orb in charming Beziers. Do a walk taking both in for great views.

12th century bridge
Apr 2019 • Couples
We crossed the river to take a look at the Vieux Pont with the cathedral looming above it. The bridge was first built in the 12th century and improved in the 1500’s. They must have done a good job in its construction since it is still in use today. Modern cars crossing an ancient bridge with the cathedral/fortress behind makes for a great photograph.
