Exploring Avignon

The charming, historic French city of Avignon lies in the far southeast of the country, with its ancient town centre bordered by medieval city walls and holding the Palace of the Popes and the famed Avignon Bridge. The equally famous Festival of Avignon, a cornucopia of culture and the performance arts, is held every year and draws huge numbers of visitors from across the world. The city is bisected by the mighty River Rhône at its confluence with the River Durance, and was originally an important Roman town which soared into historic prominence in the 14th century as the refuge for the Pope after he fled the corruption of Rome.

As a result of the presence of the papal court, extravagant palaces and mansions with glorious interior decoration were constructed and are still seen today. Over 100 churches were built, enriching the town’s architectural glory, with many now deconsecrated and converted into dwellings, shops and even a cinema. The magnificent Papal Palace and the cathedral are the highlights here, and the legendarily divinely-inspired Pont D’Avignon bridge, now ruined, is another favourite sight for the city’s many thousands of visitors.

Sightseeing in Avignon

- Palais des Papes


Avignon’s magnificent, massive Palace of the Popes held the luminaries of the 14th century Catholic Church after their flight from the corruption and filth of Rome. It’s the largest Gothic edifice in the world, and dominates the city. Mostly empty of all but frescos, it’s an imposing testament to a troubled time.


- Pont Saint-Bénézet


Known worldwide as the Pont d’Avignon, the ruined bridge is one of Avignon’s major landmarks. Built in the Middle Ages as a river crossing for locals, it was inspired by a shepherd boy who later became a saint due to his visions of angels. Just four of its original 22 arches remain, and the saint’s private chapel still stands adjacent to the structure.


Transportation in Avignon

If you’re travelling overground via the Eurostar, the French TVG superexpress train links Paris with Avignon TVG Station, just over a mile from the town centre, with the entire journey taking around six hours. Avignon is a small city, easily explored on foot and with a good choice of hotels including the 14th-century Le Prieure. Local buses run to pretty Provençal villages near the town, taxis can be hired and the Mediterranean coastline is easily reached by train, bus or self-drive.
