“It's a bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

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.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Of course, we loved the views of the two rivers above Avignon and its iconic partial bridge. We also enjoyed the little kids on wheeled vehicles who could really get up a good head of steam on the paved paths. There's a rental spot for super trikes that look like horses and carriages with little umbrellas to shade the peddler, and a really fast four-wheel low-slung model for the faster, older kids.

“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!
