Avignon is a surprising city, bewitching and full of history. You can visit it several times and still discover things. But not everyone has time to stay a week in Avignon.
I’m well aware that you don’t have time for a long circuit. In addition, the economic situation does not allow for a long outing with the family or even alone.
This is why I offer you a quick circuit (1 hour) at a low price (12 euros).
But I want to share with you my passion for the city. There is no question here of reducing the level of quality or the advice for a good stay in Avignon.
I suggest you see 4 monuments that are at the heart of the history of Avignon.
With this one-hour tour, you will discover the legend of the Avignon bridge, you will see what the cardinals brought to the city without forgetting the most beautiful of buildings, the Palais des Papes.
Introduction to the tour :
The starting point of this circuit is located in front of the Porte du Rhône, on the outside. From there, you will see one of the most emblematic monuments of Avignon, the Pont d’Avignon. We will see how this bridge changed the history of the city. Before entering the city walls, you can appreciate the ramparts. These allow Avignon to be often named in the tops of the most beautiful fortified towns in France. You will cross the Libra district, which has lived a particular history from the birth of the city to the present day.
After having seen one of the most beautiful virgins of the city, we will go up by small streets until the place of the palace. It is here that you will understand the importance of the cardinals in the evolution of the city. You will discover one of the most beautiful palaces of cardinals, the small palace. We will then head to the Palace of the Popes. We will stop in front of the cathedral before ending on the centerpiece of Avignon architecture.

Reviews from customers
“We were only in Avignon for 1 1/2 days so we had to choose something that would give us an excellent overview. This was perfect! I would highly recommend taking Vincent’s 1 hour tour at the start of any visit to Avignon. It is a dense and highly informative hour that will give you lots of information. You can then decide where to focus your efforts and time depending on your tastes. This is highly recommended. His English is excellent. ” Heather, May 2023
