What to see in Avignon

One of the largest and most historical medieval palaces in the world, Le Palais des Papes, or Palace of the Popes as it is also known, was the seat of the pope during the 14th century. Construction began in 1252 and to this day it remains an impressive and grand building of significant importance, open now to the viewing public who can experience the castle-like building that overpowers the skyline of Avignon. A symbol of the Catholic church to this day, visitors can experience 20 rooms inside its impressive walls and get involved in daily events that take place within its impressive grounds.

Avignon lends itself to a day of wandering. Boasting stunning bridges, traditional corner cafes and architecture unlike any other, there is something to marvel at around every corner. For those looking to get a real sense of life in Avignon should walk along Pont Saint-Bénézet, one of the city’s most iconic sites. The unfinished 10th-century bridge half-crosses the Rhône River and is said to be blessed with myth and legend that brings good luck and prosperity to the city.

Although it has only been a part of France since the 16th century, Avignon is renowned for its great French cuisine and is the perfect destination to enjoy the wonders of traditional gourmet dishes. There is no better way to enjoy the destination than with a guided food tour. Wander around the sunny streets exploring some of the finest foods the city has to offer, discovering the people and the passion behind some of France’s best-known delicacies. Lasting up to four hours, the city is your oyster, waiting to be explored.

See the Rhône River in all its glory on a scenic boat trip that explores the city from the surrounding waters. Take a trip to the nearby city of Arles or sit back and take in the sites that surround the walls of the medieval city. Enjoy a food-filled evening or venture out of the city to the Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine region and enjoy wine tasting.
