A calm, relaxing and interesting visit. You can easily follow using an autoguide and be informed about this important and beautiful historical place.

In the midst of baking Avignon, this park is a lovely oasis. So many trees and places to sit, plus a little pond (with lots of ducks) and great view and breeze too. It's well worth a visit for a different 'view' of Avignon.

And near the grotto, the shady biergarten with the fountains, ducks, playing children, and cold drinks was wonderful on a sunny day, too!

This beautiful garden is very close to the Palais des Papes and is certainly worth seeing. There are several "view" spots that look out over the Rhone River.

It is a pleasant up hill stroll that takes you from the hustle of the Papal Palace to a quiet green park above the city. A cool Breeze from the river below never felt so good! The views are worth it and the gardens are delightful. Local sculpture celebrates local celebrities through the ages. Great side trip from the crowds.

Yes, it's cool that this is the bridge in the old song, and yes, you get cool views. But - you can get nice views from other areas in the city, and see the bridge as you drive past. If you are short on time, I don't think this is a must see.

Of course, we loved the views of the two rivers above Avignon and its iconic partial bridge. We also enjoyed the little kids on wheeled vehicles who could really get up a good head of steam on the paved paths. There's a rental spot for super trikes that look like horses and carriages with little umbrellas to shade the peddler,... More

From her you get fabulous views over the Pont D'Avigon, River Rhone and across to Villeneuve-les-Avignon on the other side of the river. There are benches to sit and admire the views and plenty of greenery for shade. It is a great way to get a good overview of Avignon.

After visiting Palais des Papes - take a walk up the hill (it is a haul) The view is breathtaking. There is a lot of greenery - there are benches - if you don't have your own bottle of water, there is a snack shack (that I am sure is crazy expensive, but it is there if necessary) You can... More

My wife and I climbed up to the top of this lookout point in Avignon almost as soon as we got to the city. It allows for views of almost 100% of the city from high above. When you are walking through the skinny city streets you might not get a real feeling for the city, but when looking down... More
