It was a hot sunny day when we visited Palais des Papes. The uphill walk to the Rocher des Doms was a little taxing. The shaded park was therefore a very welcome place to take a break. The views from the terrace to the Rhône and Pont Saint-Bénezet were incomparable. Relaxing on a bench overlooking the Rhône, with a nice... More

Literally folks there was no where to park, anywhere. So we did a drive by of this city and drove to the next town. There is a lot of tour groups so they flood the city leaving no room for anyone else.

Pond with ducks and geese and carp. Hilltop garden with beautiful views of Avignon, the Palais des Papes, the Pont d'Avignon, and the Rhone flowing slowly south through the lush countryside. All is right with the world up here.

It's at the top of a hill, but the walk is worth it. Plenty of seats to relax, a café for refreshments and great views of the town and famous bridge.

We ascended from the river going up outer wall ramparts. At the top we had beautiful views of the Pont, River, and Old fort across the River. Once you walk into the park it is filled with children playing and a restaurant/bar with all outdoor seating. Lots of nice greenery that is well maintained. We exited towards the Popes palace...

We stumbled upon this excellent hill top park after exiting the Papal Palace. Granted, it's a pretty steep incline up to here, but so worth it! Incredible views of the city and the Rhone. I'd argue you get a better view of the famous Pont d'Avignon from here than anywhere else! Very charming little pond with a quaint cafe to... More

Just a short walk up from the palace, these gardens offer a spectacular view across the river, the bridge and for miles across the surrounding countryside. No charge for entry and very accessible, this beautiful place is an absolute must see when visiting Avignon.

The namesake for the song. A good little rest stop outside the city walls. Must see for all lovers of the Avignon song.
