We visited the Rocher des Doms in late May, 2015. The weather was windy that day, but it was still very pleasant. We hiked up from the city walls to the northwest which was a very nice way to enter the park and gave sweeping views down the river. At the top is a garden area, grassy section, grotto with... More

Only a short uphill walk from the Palais de Papes and you get a terrific view of the city, the midieval walls while enjoying a beautiful park setting. Worth the 15-30 minutes and provides great photo opportunities of the city and surrounding landscape.

I guess I spent way to long to wonder in other towns surrounded by mountains that Avignon as a whole does not look so beautiful geographically. You have fine view from the place but it does not give me the breathtaking hit some places do...

Well worth the visit! The view of the city from the top is really beautiful. Great place for a picnic. Pick up few sandwiches or even better some traditional food from the market (Les Halles) and spend an afternoon here. There is a little cafe that serves food and a little shop for ice cream and souvenirs. Also there is... More

If you are in the area this is well worth the visit. There is a lot to see inside of the historic walled city. Walk to the top of Rocher des Doms and see a great view. There is a small shop at the park at the top that sells excellent Italian icecream. Don't miss spending an afternoon just wondering... More

Buy your food at Les Halles in town, don't forget the wine. Do the hot little trudge up to the top and have a wonderful lunch. By the pond on the top there are some popular picnic tables (arrive at noon to bag the best spot) and they are sheltered by trees from both the sun and the wind. We... More

A nice place to have a good view of the entire city. Otherwise it is unremarkable. Advice to spend may be 30 mins or so.

Can be an uphill walk to get a good view of Avignon and the river, but it was worth it when you sit and enjoy nature at the top.

Fantastic views, it's a lovely walk for a coupke or a family. Most parts have stroller friendly ramps so families can enjoy as well. It's free and memorable!!
