What a hoot. This little train gives a nice city tour at a reasonable price. When I enjoyed Avignon, the train left every 15 minutes or so.
Found this little train by chance whilst sitting in a square, and it was excellent value at Euro7 per person. We had English commentary whilst we wound around the narrow cobble-stone streets, which seemed hardly wide enough to take the little bendy train. It was a most interesting ride and most enjoyable.
Bit bumpy on the cobbled, narrow streets, but the driver was obviously well used to the route! Lots to see, 40 minutes well spent.
I left Chicago arrived in Avignon 15 hours later. I heard about the train in guide books and it sounded like a great way to get a layout of the city.

We went up onto the Rocher and saw the famous bridge as well as going along some of the narrow streets... More
Not the most comfortable 40 minutes of travel I gave experienced but I saw a lot and got information about the city I might otherwise never have had. The seats are small and tightly squeezed together, so if you end up as I did sitting next to a gentleman of generous proportions you are in for a fairly uncomfortable ride.... More
