Taking a walk down this street is pleasant and of interest to people who like history. There are four existing water wheels plus one without paddles, and these give you the idea of what this place was like when the street was occupied by dyers. Do look out for the folly house Maison 4 de Chiffre, with it's crennelations and... More

The Rue de Teinturiers is a charming, short, street full of history. It is worth reading up on it before you go, just to ensure you understand. This was once the centre of Avignon's textile industry, and the canal running the length of this leafy, cobblestoned, street was once used to run watermills. Be sure to go all the way... More

I had read about this street, so we walked the Rue de Teinturiers which was pleasant. What was missing is local information in English. (We had recently been in Spain and most of the tourist information had an English translation. We really appreciated this.)

Strolled down to the wine cave, pondered the water wheels and enjoys glasses of red wine. Repeated and relaxed on a second night.

A nice quiet tree lined street with a few restaurants and a chapel. There are several water wheels and a stream down one side.

One nice aspect of old Avignon (within the walls) is that you can walk from one end to the other in about 15-20 minutes. The center plaza, near the Palace of the Pope is busy and contains many tourist restaurants and shops. We walked past that and also Les Halles and ended up on peaceful Rue de Teinturiers, which was... More

These street is not so crowded with tourist, although is very interesting and beautiful. It is more artistic neighborhood with lovely restaurants and all mill wheels. It is surrounded by buildings and churches with very interesting stories. A must during the day and also by night when in Avignon.
