About Avignon, France



9 reviews and tips of Avignon, France




glomarrone says ...

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.

glomarrone says ...

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

glomarrone says ...

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.

glomarrone says ...

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.

glomarrone says ...

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.

glomarrone says ...

Two suggestions for good Galleries to visit if you have time are: MMB Gallery for Contemporary Art at 20 Balance str. and the Art Gallery for Provencal Painters from the 19th & 20 Century, 2 Joseph Vernet str.

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
