Write A Port Tip

Cooking class excursion was mediocre. They made a bread and some cream puffs. I had expected a dish of some kind with a sauce or something. The lunch was mediocre. Appetizer and dessert were ok, but the main dish was broiled cod, which was very undercooked and had an off taste. Very few people ate it. The visits to shops and walk around the city were good. The tour of Arles was interesting with the Roman ruins, but we had expected more about VanGogh. We would have liked to explore on our own, but there was too much walking to get back to the bus

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.


Be sure to browse the Seasonal Local Market - 20 local growers from Avignon and the area. Monday evening from 5 pm to 7: 30 PM.


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
