On peut aussi dire "du pont Saint-Martin"?  Quand est-ce qu'on utilise "depuis" (from)? Ce sont des synonymes?

Bonjour Barbara,

You are right that "du" is also a correct answer. We have now amended the exercise to include "du".

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

To say 'a view from somewhere' in French I think you can use either de or depuis but de could also mean 'of' so may be ambiguous. I found this discussion helpful: https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/fr-de-depuis-%C3%A0-partir-de-lieu-ou-moment.774134/
