I always recommend the Petit Train. It doesn't travel too far as everything is pretty close by. But it's really fun weaving your way through the tiny streets. During the busy holiday periods, expect a bit of a wait to get on, sometimes 30 minutes plus. But well worth it.

The lazy way to see much of Avignon centre and find out what is worth walking to. Commentary is in the language of your choice through headphones.

The Petit Train takes you round all the major attractions of Avignon in an hour or so. It's the best way to get to see every 'Must see' part of the town.

The train cost €8, which was a bit costly for what it was. There was an audio presentation in different languages, which was quite basic, but we got an overall view of the city and maybe what to visit later. In our case, we had visited some places already, hence the comment about the cost.

Don't let people put you off, le Petit Train is worth the ride. You see things from a different angle and with a commentary which makes it much more interesting than walking the streets with a guidebook (OK too). Relax and enjoy in comfort, and all the children wave at you as you go by.

It squeezes down narrow cobbled streets in a hair-raising (joking) ride around Avignon inside the walled city and ventures outside the wall to show the Pont de Avignon, very good value for money to acclimatise yourself of the walled city before you walk it!

The little trains are always the best way to start so you can get a good look at where you want to go and what you want to do.

If you have 40 minutes the train gets you past most the sights without having to walk there. Good explanation of Avignon history.
