Good place to visit if you are in Avignon but not a destination. Audioguide gives a good explanation of the history of the bridge which was damaged/destroyed by the river on numerous occasions. Interesting structure but not nearly as niiteresting as other old structures (e.g Pont du gard and Theatre Antique d'Orange)

Yes, my wife really enjoyed sitting in a good spot to just relax and oak up the sun. It really is such a lovely park, right next to the Palais des Papes and some other museums. Nice views too!

Excellent place for a picnic before viewing the sites. The walk up to the left of the Palace, when facing it, is recommended with a return down the steps behind the palace.

When you go to Avignon you go for the rich history and a beautifully preserved medieval walled city itself. We spent four days there and it was everything we expected however something seemed to be missing some intangible we could not put our fingers on. We realized that even 600 years ago people needed a place for respite and as... More

It was 75 mins journey from Marseille rail station and the fare was about £12 per head. From the station, we took bus A15... More

Beyond the Pope's Palace you'll find a park with amazing views of the Rhone and the countryside in all directions. A great view of the Pont d'Avignon (Saint Bénézet bridge) can be had from here.

I walked up here while my wife was resting. The views are spectacular, You can see the Rhone and the dam, the surrounding sites, and even Marseille when it is clear. The park is very pleasant. I am glad I went to see it as I got some great pictures but this is not a must see

Beautiful gardens and great vistas. Worth the little climb. At the top of the gardens, you have a beautiful view of the pont d'Avignon. Stairs will provide you a quick access to the bridge area. No fees.

We climbed up a tower to get to the gardens, but we subsequently saw them from the little tourist train (€8). Attractive and great views across to Avignon Villeneuve.
