The Pont d'Avignon and the Palais des Papes

A historic city with character, Avignon is the perfect place to stroll around in the mild Provencal climate. Let's take a closer look at two of the city's most emblematic monuments: the Pont d'Avignon and the Palais des Papes.

Two not-to-be-missed sites in Avignon

The Pont d'Avignon

Built in the early 12th century, the Pont d'Avignon (whose real name is Pont Saint-Bénézet) is one of Avignon's major landmarks. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The special feature of this bridge is that only four arches remain, the other 18 having been destroyed over the centuries. It is therefore not possible to cross the Rhône via the Pont d'Avignon. You can, however, visit it to enjoy the superb views and learn more about its history thanks to an audio guide. By now, you're probably thinking of the song "Sur le Pont d'Avignon, on y danse, on y danse..."! !

Practical information:
⏰ Open every day from 1 March to 31 December. Online booking available.
💶 Full price: €5, concessions: 4€, free for children under 8.

The Palais des Papes

Built in the 14th century, the Palais des Papes is the largest Gothic building of the Middle Ages. It is actually made up of two buildings: the palace and the new palace. Built on the Rocher des Doms, it overlooks the city and the Rhône. The papal gardens, meanwhile, are an enchantment through the seasons. Every year in July, the main courtyard of the Palais des Papes plays host to the Avignon Festival, the world's largest live performance and theatre event.

Practical information :
⏰ Open every day.
💶 Full price: €12, reduced price: 10€, free for children under 8. Free visit every Sunday.
