From its flamboyant past as the capital of Christianity, Avignon has preserved an exceptional heritage, much of which is listed by Unesco.
Five museums (Calvet, Lapidaire, Petit Palais, Requien, Palais du Roure) complement each other, offering a chance to see several thousand works of art – objects, documents, paintings, sculptures – spread across Avignon’s finest buildings. And what’s more, it’s free for all!
Passionate about culture and in love with my city, I make the most of the Festival, but I also like to be able to take a few welcome breaks from my hectic schedule: shopping at the market, exhibitions, afterwork… Ready to discover my little secrets?
Behind the Palais des Papes, the Utopia cinema is a regular haunt. Housed in a former warehousing facility, this non-profit cinema offers VOD screenings, meetings with directors and conferences on social issues, illustrated by cult feature films.
Good plan 👍 At Utop’, as we say here, you can also enjoy a tartine/salade at the bar or a home-cooked meal in the Manutention restaurant. In short, a lively and convivial cultural venue.
