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.

See a lot of Avignon in less than an hour. Starts in front of the Palais des Papes & winds it's way around this beautiful city. It takes a good driver to navigate the narrow streets & sharp turns & ours did just that. We saw things we might have missed otherwise. Good deal @ 7 Euros.

We had been wandering around on a Sunday morning trying to get the sense of Avignon. As we approached the square near the Papal Palace, we saw a little tour train pull in. We went up to the conductor who was working to set up shop. For 7 euros each we had a seat on the train and enjoyed the... More

Once you have walked around the grotto there is not a lot for children in Avignon, but the train is a must do. A good value compared to similar rides in other locarions it gives you a quick tour of the town in a fun way. Pick it up in front of the Popes Palace and enjoy the town.

It was a second visit to Avignon and this time there was a train that toured the roadways so we hopped on. Seven Euros and well worth the price, the train is open-topped so probably not so good on a rainy or windy day. This particular day was sunny and warm and the journey fancinating, not least of all was... More

Thru the streets of Avignon, we enjoyed a quick, bumpy, petite train ride in the early evening with an English audio-guide. We were whipped around and about the city thru narrow streets, streets of Art Noveau buildings, streets with Marion (Virgin Mary) niches and views of the Pont Saint-Bénézet Bridge. Departing from the front of the Pope's Palace, we took... More

A good way to see the city in 45 minutes to orientate yourself, or just to ride around and listen to the commentary through the headsets provided. It's a squeeze in places because of the narrow streets and bumpy on the cobbles - but a lot of fun.

Very typical 40 minute tourist ride of the area around the Pope's Palace and the surrounding downtown area for 6 or 7 Euros as I recall. You'll see a few of the highlights on this bumpy ride. If you're pressed for time, or not up to the walk, give it a try, otherwise, just get a walking tour map from... More
