No visit to this port should miss a tour of the Popes' Palace. You casn do a self guided tour, a tour with a headset for a couple of euro or a complete guided tour. There are plenty of videos inside - furnishings inside are scant. Still the place is beautiful.

If you have time, see Pont St Benezet (Pont d' Avignon). The bridge spans the Rhone between Villeuve-les-Avignon and Avignon. It was built between 1177 & 1185. This early bridge was destroyed & rebuilt with 22 stone arches. It is opened every day from 9 am to 7 pm. Entrance fee, 2 Euros worth it

Some interesting shopping areas to visit are Rue de la Balance for Provencal souvenir shops; Rue de la Republique and the Pedestrian area of Avignon. Good prices.

Consider the Mini Train Audio Guided Visit. The train starts from the Palace of Popes and it runs from 10 am to 7 pm. It costs 8 Euros when i WAS THERE.

Three suggestions for restaurants are: Christian Etienne located in a historical building offers provencal cuisine, La Vieille Fontaine offers very creative cuisine and Les 5 sens has cuisine influenced by South West France.
