From the Avignon Center Train Station then walk thru this massive structures, then look at the ground to see different sculptures and the looks of an old place since the start of papacy especially the water turbines that protects the city by flooding through Rhone River.

I loved walking this street on my way to the pedestrian zone. Cute shops, too. Big oaks, cobbled streets not suitable for heels.

We stayed in an apartment in this street and found it a bit noisy at night, but it's very pleasant - traffic free, with bars and cafes beside the small river

Not sure what all the hype is about. Crappy old buildings covered in grafitti. Nothing much to see here.
