The Promenade Antoine Pinay, a former towpath, is very quiet and pleasant, offering a breathtaking and exceptional view of the Pont d’Avignon, the Rocher des Doms and the Palais des Papes; it’s ideal for a jog, a stroll or even a reverie in the grass.
Until the invention of steamships, heavy convoys of goods were hauled up the Rhône by oxen, horses or men.
Take advantage of the lawn to picnic in the shade of the poplars, admiring the magnificent panoramic view of the Pont d’Avignon, the Palais des Papes and the Rocher des Doms on the other side of the Rhône.
Want a little more comfort? Picnic tables can be found a little further along chemin de la Traille, as well as on the greenway section of chemin de la Barthelasse, just before the intersection with chemin de la Traille.
