Rue de la Republic is the main street in the old walled city. It is lovely to walk through with shops, cafes & bakerys . You will also pass the tourist office on your walk so stop in and obtain city map listing 3 local walks in the area which are very interesting and a must see. At the end... More

This street was teeming with people walking up and down (18 Sept 2016 was a free day to enter all museums & public buildings in Avignon, so plenty of people around). There are plenty of cafes and shops to explore in this street.

This is the main street of Avignon. We visited it many times as the tourist information centre is on the street. I was looking for a particular shop for which I had the street number from the web- neither the numbers were clear most of the way, nor could i locate the shop despite going up and down twice. This... More

This is Avignon's main street close to the tourist main attractions (Palais des Papes, Place d'Horlage) where you will find so many restaurants / cafe and some shopping. Avignon is a larger city in Provence and out of all the places we visited, we could have done without seeing it.

Main shopping street in town, long, alive and filled of tourists and locals. If you are really need to make a shopping - go there. Unfortunately the stores are closed just after 6 pm, but the restaurants and cafe are open. We used this street to packed sandwiches before a trip to the surrounding area of the city and bought...

The main street in the city center. Full of shops and restaurants. It goes from the main entrance of the city to the Pope's palace.

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.
