In an 8 euro ride, over 40 minutes, we saw much of the town and its sites, getting it into perspective and enabling additional site visits Good value, time well spent - and a good driver

Rode the petit train as I was with my mother who wanted to look around without the walking. Commentary is ok but not enough detail for my liking. Goes through all the little streets of Avignon so you can have a look at architecture and shops whilst sitting in the train.

It's not necessary to take the train because the old city is small enough to walk, but it was fun. A good choice for people who have trouble walking.

This is a quirky way of finding where all the attractions are for you to visit. Once completed the journey, go back to the attractions you want to visit.

do this first on your visit to Avignan as its a great way to see the best bits of the city and get your bearings for further exploration. Reasonably priced with a good audio guide

Did this the day i arrived to get a good lay of the land - it's literally a mini train that takes you around the town in less than an hour. Pick up/drop off is in the square outside of the Papal Palace so very easy.

If you have to get from Gare Avignon Centre to Gare Avignon TGV or reverse, this is the only and cheapest (1 euro) way to do it.

You don't take these things for comfort anywhere in the world and Avignon is no exception. They bump, they rattle, the seats are hard and uncomfortable but the views are great. It passes all the worthwhile places to visit and, if as we were time-limited, it helps to pick the cream of the crop. Not as good as the Red... More

This train, which was more like an extended golf cart, was a cool way to get oriented to the city. It was great for the day we arrived, because we could just get an idea about what there was to see in Avignon and get oriented to the city.
