Start your discovery with the city’s most emblematic landmark: the Palais des Papes. The residence of the 14th-century pontiffs and a Unesco World Heritage site, it is the most important Gothic palace in the world!
Once the tour is over, there’s still a long list of places to discover, so here are a few suggestions:
The Pont d’Avignon or Pont Saint-Bénezet, the basilique métropolitaine Notre-Dame des Doms and the jardin du Rocher des Doms, the Halles, l’île de la Barthelasse…
Go to the Tourist Office to pick up some valuable tips and good plans!
We recommend taking the Avignon City Pass to enjoy the destination at a low price as well as a maximum number of experiences!
Also take the opportunity to ask for the Loisirs & Patrimoine guide, your Bible for discovering the city! In particular, this brochure presents heritage sites to visit in Avignon and Villeneuve-lez-Avignon, as well as themed walking tours to do on your own.
