There were lots of restaurants to eat, stores to shop in, street performers to be entertained! A lot of ambiance walking down the street. They had really cool ice cream (soft serve) machines that whirled the soft serve in all different colors as it came out! It was so cute. I really enjoyed my time spent here.

Great access to the heart of Avignon. Lots of shops and the tourism office is there. Remember to ask for your Avignon pass. Its free and it gives discounts to sights. Other than that, its just a street.

Nothing special but it is the Main Street of walled Avignon. Few cafés and they are very touristy. My philosophy is the smaller the street the better the experience and Avignon is no exception.

This is the most known street of Avignon and it is right by the side of Place de l'Horloge. It is a street of commerce, a long street filled with clothes store such as Zara or H&M, patisseries, cafes, restaurants (not many esplanades) and always full of people. It has also the Musée Lapidaire. If you're not looking for shopping... More

If you want to get a feel for Avignon, then take a wonder up this street. Avignon is a substantial French city The people will give you an indication of the place that Avignon is.

Chain stores including Monoprox, Zara, and Macadonalds. Dog poo. Many homeless people. Broken glass. Cigarettes. Millions of tourists. Very helpful tourist office. They kindly printed information for us on French streets signs in English. The back streets offer much more charm.

This is the main road into the old city. Many shops adorn the sides. It turns right in the center of Avignon where there is a plaza d'Horologie. A left turn will take you to higher end shopping and if you follow it to the right, Les Halles

I gave it an average review because on an average day I would say it's a...well...average main thoroughfare with lots of chain stores including a Monoprix (which I love). The night we were there it was closed to cars though and it turned into a giant street party and then it was no longer average, but extraordinary.

The Rue de la Republique is a wide thoroughfare filled with many of the standard European shops (H&M, Mango, Zara) found in any major European cities. Its wide open feel, stemming from the 19th century, is a stark contrast to the narrow lanes elsewhere in town. For tourists, you'll find ice cream here, abotu €2.50 for the first scoop, less... More
