    The City of Popes

    Located in Southern France, Avignon is the largest capital of the department of Vaucluse. Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the charming city center is home to the palace of the popes, Rocher des Doms, and the bridge of Avignon.

    The historic Palais des Papes is one of the most significant medieval Gothic buildings in Europe. Right on the square of the same name, the Papal Palace is an important tourist attraction where you can see the pope’s private chambers and frescoes by Matteo Giovannetti.

    Le Pont d’Avignon was built in the Middle Ages and, according to the legend, a young shepherd called Benezet was inspired by angels to build the bridge. The children’s song "Sur Le Pont D'Avignon" is now famous all over the world.

    The beautiful gardens of Rocher des Doms are ideal for a promenade or picnic. Featuring a large pond, swans, ducks and lush vegetation, this place is perfect for relaxing moments. From the top, you can enjoy the views of the Rhône.

    You can stay in one of Avignon's hotels, apartments and B&Bs with Booking.com. In the village of Montfavet, Avignon-Caumont Airport is only 4 miles away from Avignon.
