It’s impossible not to fall under the charm of this southern French city, with the appearance of postcard, Avignon illuminates the Rhône with its pink tiled roofs, its cathedral, its ramparts and its magnificent Palace of the Popes.
Avignon, the former papal city which for almost a century was the home of the Popes (1309-1423), remains a concentrate of art history.
Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Avignon and its 4330 meters of ramparts are full of must-see monuments: Palace of the des Popes, Episcopal complex, the Doms gardens, Pont d’Avignon…
More than 160 edifices are listed as historical monuments.
But what would Avignon be without its world-famous Festival, which every summer in July transforms the heart of the city into a gigantic open theatre.
Avignon, which has been declared the wine capital of the Rhone Valley, also knows how to combine the pleasures of taste and its Provençal gastronomy is highly sought after.
With its exceptional regional products (honey, cheeses, olive oil, aromatic herbs,…) its fruits and vegetables produced nearby, Avignon is the place in France where you can enjoy the pleasure of eating locally.
