Average street in historical city

The smaller streets off to the side had more interesting shops, it seemed. Parts of the street seemed "sketchy" at night.

The Rue de la Republique starts directly in front of the central Gare in Avignon, and takes you through Place L'Horloge and directly to the Palais de Papes. Yes, for the most part, it is a high street, but what a beauty! There are churches, theaters, and the lovely Square Agricol Perdiguier, which is a peaceful, easily accessible (and very... More

The main street leads straight from the railway station to the centre of the city (Place de L'Horloge and Palais des Papes. Like most main city streets has all the large shops, restaurants and cafes, and a really good tourist information office, the staff here are wonderful.

Just like most towns in the world Avignon has a main street. Chock full of stores, Hotels and cafes there is also a supermarket. The supermarket Carrefour City is located next to the McDonald's and is a great place to pick up drinks or food for a picnic.

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

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.
