A massive bridge that leads nowhere. A palace where seven popes lived. And those imposing medieval city walls.
Your guide will tell you about Avignon as you wander in and out of the rampart doors and posterns. You will learn why this city was the seat of the papacy for seventy years, and how it only became part of France two centuries ago.
Go explore the cathedral, the bridge, the Palace of the Popes. This is the largest gothic building extant, and you will marvel at colorful medieval frescoes in its two chapels.
