Avignon for groups

Capital of Christianity in the 14th century, the papacy left us an extraordinary heritage. The heart of the city, with the Palais des Papes and the Pont, is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Avignon was elected European Capital of Culture in 2000. No wonder: For over 70 years, Avignon has been home not only to the world’s most prestigious theater festival, held in July, but also to a wide range of events throughout the year, as well as museums with eclectic collections remarkable for their richness and profusion. Avignon is also the capital of the Côtes du Rhône: tasting is a pleasure that can be learned at the interRhône wine school. Any occasion is a good opportunity to celebrate this famous nectar! In short: Avignon is the ideal base camp for your tours of Provence!
