“Fantastic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

From her you get fabulous views over the Pont D'Avigon, River Rhone and across to Villeneuve-les-Avignon on the other side of the river.

There are benches to sit and admire the views and plenty of greenery for shade. It is a great way to get a good overview of Avignon.

“Spectacular view - long walk up!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

After visiting Palais des Papes - take a walk up the hill (it is a haul)

The view is breathtaking. There is a lot of greenery - there are benches - if you don't have your own bottle of water, there is a snack shack (that I am sure is crazy expensive, but it is there if necessary)

You can see the "Pont d'Avignon" (St Benezay bridge) and get more of a feeling for the city with the bird's eye view.

“Great way to start your stay in Avignon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

My wife and I climbed up to the top of this lookout point in Avignon almost as soon as we got to the city. It allows for views of almost 100% of the city from high above. When you are walking through the skinny city streets you might not get a real feeling for the city, but when looking down on it from Rocher des Doms you get a better understanding of the landscape of the city. Walk around the park and find great places to take pictures, and lookout over this great city!

“Nice view from the hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

FYI the beautiful view of the bridge is from the hill above. To walk out onto the bridge, there is a fee. We opted not to pay since we were on a tight schedule in Avignon. I would imagine the view of the city is great from there.

“Go and enjoy. Marvellous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

When you visit the Papal Palace, buy the joint ticket to include this famous bridge. Of course, why its famous is all down to childhood songs, but the key is the audio tour. Its really good. Engaging, historical and well timed. Standing in the middle of the mighty Rhone river listening to the condensed history on a sunny day was well worth it.
