The park is small and it took less than 30 min. to walk around. The park is on hill and the view of landscape was good. It is better to go to park from museum side, center of the city. If you go from the river, you have to climb up the hill.

The gardens, water features, cafe and children areas are excellent, but what the garden has best is its views out over the Rhone and across the city. A great place to relax and chill out. Please note that you cannot access the Pont d'Avignon from the steps, but they will take you down to town, where you can walk around... More

This was one of many attractions in the walled city of Avignon. Hard to select sometimes but would encourage the walk here.

Must include on your walking tour, but this isn't the highlight. Great views from the various lookouts. Why not download the app "city walks" and choose the orientation self-guided walk on Avignon? Basic version is free, for a few dollars you can get version that shows you the sites on your GPS enabled device.

This hill take you behind the popes palace and you can have a good view of the city. If you have time and do not mind walking up hill then it is a place to go and send some time.

This is a lovely place to visit with ponds, waterfalls, landscaping and an incredible view from the top of the Rhone river and Avignon. This is a great place to visit and plan to spend some time to wander and take in the enjoyment of the place.

This is a lovely place to visit if you're in Avignon. Besides the Pope's palace, this is worth a walk and there are some great photo opportunities as you walk towards the river. Parents with children have to be careful though, as safety measures are insufficient.

Save yourself to long walk up the driveway and use the stairs near the the Popes Palace. There is a small cafe in the garden or you can get a sandwich in town. Climb up and enjoy a relaxing lunch and great views of the river. The gardens are closed at night. TIP: If you are going to tour the... More
