“Garden in Avignon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

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.

“Welcome Gardens in a Cement Frying Pan of a City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

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.

“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.
