Not something I'd normally do but my wife had a knee problem that prevented her walking. Yes, you do get to see the town and whizz around the little streets (scaring the pedestrians) but you can't get off and look at anything. You can shoot pictures from the train and there is a reasonably informative audio guide (in several languages).... More

This train leaves from outside the popes palace and winds its way through many parts of Avignon. It cost €8 Euros and lasts approx 40 minutes, taking in the Rocher des Doms and many other points of interest. Multi lingual headphones are provided.

Nice to have a subtle train that blends in with the surroundings rather than the garish little trains in other places. Quite an extensive round trip which takes you high up into view points and saves the hike for those less keen on hiking around. Reasonable price and popular - they run quite often too and get busy. Departs from... More

This little train takes you to see places in Avignon that you otherwise might miss. There is a good audio commentary to go along with the ride.

Went for a trip on the train to get an overview, was a little informative, could have been more. Better to get a map and do your own thing. Helps give a quick look around if time is an issue

It's difficult to see everything as you pass through the narrow streets. A bit disorienting. Otherwise, an okay way to get acquainted with the town.

There experiences are always useful as an introduction to a new destination, and this was no exception. In comparison to other similar experiences, I did think the commentary was quite light-on with extended silences. The best observation i can make is that the ride provided context for the rest of our visit. Recommended but keep your expectations modest.

Great little train to see Avignon and work out what you want to venture out to see or to make sure you hadn't missed anything. Staff were great in assisting wheelchair.

We took the Petit Train ride in Avignon, a 40 minute ride for 8 euros. The train bumped along the cobblestone streets with the audio guide detailing the principle sights and historic facts of Avignon. It is a good way to decide which places you want to go back and explore in depth while giving a good overview of Avignon.
