Leading from the central staion to the heart of the town, this is quite a busy road but houses the Tourist Information Centre (very helpful), some good bars and cafes, a very pretty little park with a nice cafe and the Archaeology Museum which is very small but has some nice pieces (and is entirely wheelchair accessible).

This is the standard main business thoroughfare found in many mid and large size French cities. Cute shops, high prices, and nothing unique. If you've got time to kill, go find a museum.....

Very picturesque tree lined walk in the small city of Avignon featuring many shops and restaurants and more than one rubby. Hang on to your wallet.

Rue de la République is the main shopping street of Avignon, but nothing special, same shops as in other European main cities. Nice shopping in summer.

The street is long and lined with trees, quite pretty in a way. There are plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and a supermarket for everything you need, but also a lot of too-expensive designer shops and (as typical in France) a lot of pharmacies. There's a regular market on every weekend at the station end; at the place de l'Horloge... More

It is also... More

Lots of great little cafes, many cheese shops, wine, bread, ice creams, a pretty park to sit and relax plus free wifi, a merry go round, streets are closed on Sundays and there are markets like a boot sale, with people selling all kinds of things. Loved it!

Wine, bread, cheese... what more can you need other than one of the many street cafes to sit and relax a while in the mid day sun!
