This is a sloping park up on a high bluff just past the Palais des Papes (Palace of the Popes) & Cathedral, reached by walking up a long wide ramp. This high point is shaded by numerous trees though the main viewing gallery is in the open. Way below is that famous (half) bridge, the Pont Benezet over the Rhone.... More

Walk uphill from the bottom of the Popes Palace. We took breakfast with us to eat in the park. Great views of Villeneuve Les Avignon fort across the river as well at the famous bridge. You can walk down to the bridge and back into the town which takes you to a nice shopping street for souvenirs. There was a... More

After the crowd at the bottom of Palace square, it's nice and quiet up here. The view is perhaps the highest this side of the river ( we did cross the river the next day, it's better on this side high up) The garden, the little pond,the cafe, all inducive to a leisurely stroll and enjoyment.

Rocher des doms is very pretty to look at. However, water is water, not a lot you can say really. I suppose its worth a visit, providing it isn't raining.

As mentioned by others, that walk up to the park is a steep one, but so worth it. There is lots of shade to take a breather on the way up and lots to see. The view at the top is exceptional. So much to look at from the river, the bridges, back to the town etc. Definitely worth the... More

A little oasis of calm with good views over the river and the famous bridge. It's a steep walk so take water and take your time.

A steepish walk up to this park will reward you with stunning views of pont St Benezet and the surrounding countryside. There is a reasonably priced cafe on a duck pond offering ice creams all manner of drinks and food. If you are fit you can push a wheelchair up but there is also a land train for eight euros...

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
