This is a lovely place to visit with ponds, waterfalls, landscaping and an incredible view from the top of the Rhone river and Avignon. This is a great place to visit and plan to spend some time to wander and take in the enjoyment of the place.

Its a half bridge, close to Palais du Pl. Nice surrounding of old palace, park and river. You can click photos from below the bridge while being on the road also. If you want to go on the top of the bridge then pay 5 euro per head. Entrance is just below the bridge on the palace side of the... More

This is a lovely place to visit if you're in Avignon. Besides the Pope's palace, this is worth a walk and there are some great photo opportunities as you walk towards the river. Parents with children have to be careful though, as safety measures are insufficient.

Save yourself to long walk up the driveway and use the stairs near the the Popes Palace. There is a small cafe in the garden or you can get a sandwich in town. Climb up and enjoy a relaxing lunch and great views of the river. The gardens are closed at night. TIP: If you are going to tour the... More

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.
