Beautiful park to wander in, especially after a meal or visiting the Pont d'Avignon. Lots of steps if you are accessing it from the lower area.

We took the train close to the Pope's palace to climb the rock. The ponds and the gardens are lovely. But the best is the amazing view in the bridge and Mt Ventoux.

We have been here twice now, we went one of the first years we came to Avignon and then went this year again. We took my parents in law up and they loved it. It is a bit of a walk but it is worth it. The views to the Rhone and the bridge are amazing. The gardens also have... More

Peaceful place to walk and see wonderful views of Avignon. Take a sandwich, sit and relax on one of the many benches under the trees and enjoy the gardens.

It's a great garden and view. You could view the river from the top. Great place for couples or family with kids. :)

The gardens themselves are very well laid out, but not worth a trip but the views are - you can see for miles, and understand why Avignon has been strategically important since the stone age.

Excellent walk from the river to the top! And then were rewarded with the great garden views. We actually stumbled on this as we took our own walk. I just read where you can get a slef-guided tour online. I should have read my fellow writers to Trip Advisor! Anyway...don't miss out on the wonderful views!

We might not have come here but for a taxi driver who recommended these gardens. A steady but gentle climb from the Palais des Papes takes you to a superb view over the river and the far bank right up to the garrigue hills. There's also a curious sundial where you yourself become the pointer - stand on the central... More
