This is the main north-south axis of Avignon and, as expected, you find lots of shops and restaurants, some very good and others to be avoided. If you need groceries, there's the Carrefour. If you need basic necessities, there's the Monoprix. If you're looking for atmosphere, try somewhere else!

Walk up and down several times to get the feel of the street, then sample the wares in the several patisseries. Baguettes are wonderful & filling, but their freshness leads you to want more, so beware. You'll also find the tourist information at the end nearest the train station, inside the towns wall.

While tourists gravitate to the Popes Palace and such, I got the feeling this public space was more to meet the needs of the typical resident. Lots of shops and people and dogs which leave their droppings everywhere. well worth a short walk.

This is a straight street that has loads of restaurants and shops on it. It is a wee bit of a scruffy street (please mind your feet as I have stood in dogs mess on a previous visit) but safe enough.

This is the longest stretch of straight road within the town walls, and was built in the 19th century to provide access from the railway station to the central square. Nowadays it is filled with numerous shops and cafes with traffic restricted to travelling in only one direction. It is a lovely street, spoilt only by the occasional beggar.

Within the walls this is a central axis, but consists of ubiquitous brands that one might find anywhere. For a more interesting experience, go west for restaurants, and for shopping, East towards Les Halles has far more varied and interesting shopping. Rue de la Republique could honestly be any main shopping street.

This Rue reminds me of a tourist shopping area with medium to high end clothing shops, restaurants and some museums. If you visit Avignon you have to go to this area at least once.

Rue de la Republique is the main street leading from the station to the centre of the town. The street is rich in contrasts from ancient cobblestones to concrete and bitumen. There is an abundance of supermarkets, patisseries, ATMs and specialty shops. In the square at the end of the street, there is a delightful two storey merry-go-round. The Papal... More

Main street that goes directly from the train station to the Place de l'Horlage and Theater, and the Palais des Papes. Seems to be the main shopping street with clothes, shoes, take-away cafes, etc.
