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.

Just a short walk from the centre. Plenty of bars and restaurants and people looking at the old water mills

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