“Avignon Aerie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Worth the hike up the hill. Stunning views of the Rhone, Avignon, Villaneuve lez Avignon and Mont Ventoux. Many photos ops. The garden is a retreat separating you from the city. A quiet spot for lovers, friends, and families. Linger if you have the time.

“Nice Park and View of the surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great garden/city park to hangout, to walk around. Do not miss the view around Avignon, especially the Pont D'Avignon and of the other side of the Rhone, Villeneuve les Avignon.

“Beautiful view from up here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

The Rocher des Doms Park and gardens is up a grand entrance to the side of the cathedral (left of the Palace of Popes) and has large gardens with various water features and views back across the city and the Rhone River. This is a good place to relax or picnic, there is a little cafe there and you can also buy ice creams to take away.

This lush garden behind the Palais des Papes overlooks the Rhone, the pont d'Avignon, and Villeneuve. Wonderful spot for a picnic.

“watch out for crazy kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

The views from the Rocher des Doms are great, but the thing my kids loved was the pedal-powered contraptions available for hire on weekends, Wednesday afternoons and holidays. Smaller kids can get around in a kind of trotting gig with wheeled horse out front, while older kids have pedal powered cars to zoom around in. I am sure the odd tourist gets skittled by an out of control kid, but my little darlings certainly had a ball. PS there is also a fairy floss vendor so they can get really hyped up
