The water wheels are worth any detour you have to make. Some are in pristine condition, some aren't (which is a shame). The canal is still running clean - and some lovely looking mansions along parts of it. I wandered through early in the morning enroute to somewhere else, so everything shut - but appears to be plenty of restaurants/cafes... More

Unfortunately it was a wet and cold day when we visited, and although looked quite interesting and pretty, the sunshine would have made the experience much better. Also, there seemed to be a number of closed street cafes. Sitting at one of these on a nice day would be quite idyllic I would imagine.

We were doing some little walking tours of the historic areas of Avignon and found this street. It was getting dark and the further toward the town walls we walked the quieter it became. However it was pretty cool to see the remains of the old canal and to find many of the old water wheels, some in good condition,... More

A very nice walking street with waterwheels form days of old. The street isn't very lively some nights but on the weekend, it was most enjoyable. We enjoyed drinks outdoors before dinner nearby.

we happened along this street at lunchtime heading to see the watermill but were pleasantly surprised to find it full of some lovely bistro style restaurants so we sat by the canal and had a delicious lunch in this very peaceful spot

Can't comment on the craft shops highlighted by the guidebooks: we were more taken with the stone blocks separating the pavement from the carriageway: each one with its own distinctive carving - one miniature version of the archway that stands behind it, and one with a man's head poking from one end with his feet poking out the other and...

A quaint cobbled street so different from the rest of the city, a much more relaxed area, situated just inside the walls of the city with the canal running alongside. The water wheels need some TLC but give an insight to what life must have been like for the textile workers of the time. Look for the carved stones along... More

Although this street is historically interesting we did not find it as pretty and picturesque as some of the other streets in Avignon.

When we visited many of the shops and galleries were closed, the street was torn-up and under construction. The water wheel was fun to see next to the church and there some restaurants and cafes that were full the couple of nights we walked by.
