A little bit of history

Great to see a famous site in the city...however it was a pity to be visiting the city when they were doing works on the bridge ....did lessen the impact.

I Saw This From A Boat Trip, Which Is Worth Taking For The Afternoon. An Amazing Monument With So Much History. Do Visit!

If you have a French or francophone background, you know the song you learned in primary school so you enjoy the bridge. If not, not sure its worth the visit.

The Bridge is being renovated, but it is an example of the bridges of the middle ages. Go downstairs and see the movie about its reconstruction. All is interesting.

We paid to do this attraction when we went to the Palace de Papes which I'm glad we did as there really isn't that much to see. The film show/history explaining the bridge was good but going out onto the top of the bridge was a bit disappointing as you can see most of the bridge from the side of... More

After hearing the "Pour le son. Avignon." ditty referring to this bridge about a hundred times and walking the part that is not under construction I'm scratching my head trying to figure out what the big deal is. The bridge is historical, but there isn't much to see. I believe the fee is included in the combo ticket with the... More

Currently under construction so the views are obstructed. Be wary of the mistral winds, out over the water it felt like we would be blown off the bridge.

Had a look at the bridge from up above in the beautiful park behind the Palais du Papes and excellent viewpoint from there. Very reasonable little shop in the park and best place to buy postcards.

This is a lovely attraction in Avignon. The bridge has been fairly preserved and it is a great attraction to see while in Avignon. Enjoy the song about the bridge!

It was fun to see the bridge after hearing the song in my childhood. Our guide said that the "ladies dancing" were actually under the bridge. This is one of the 3 main attractions in the old city.
