Lovely Park. Great views

Set above Avignon this Park provides great views of the surrounding areas. There is a great cafe too set around a picturesque pond. When in Avignon take the time to go here

A waiter told us not to miss visiting Richer des Dom. He was right... Beautiful panoramic view of the Rhone and the village below

This park was delightful. the views, the ducks, lunch by the pond. You get a 360 degree view from up above. Make sure to take a good look around and get as many pictures as you can. Also please do visit the restaurant, you will not regret it. I personally think it is the best place for a nice light... More

Having slogged around the Pope's palace, it was good to have the chance to walk through this pleasant park with fine views over the river towards the famous Avignon bridge. The park cafe was an unexpected find. Drinks and food were reasonably priced and it was pleasant to sit and eat in the sun by a pond with a fountain... More

We were by here and took the steps that go up to the top of the old town. It is within close walking distance.

To recap your your visit of the Palais the Papas, the cathedral and the city center, go up to Rocher des Doms for a panoramic view of Avignon. Great shots of the Pont St Benezet, the Rhone and the Avignon surroundings can be taken from here.

Good walk up to get an overview of Avignon, able to see the bridge & rivers too. Quiet spots for picnics or just relaxing after a day of walking. Best of all, it's free!

If you are in Avignon at or near the Palais des Papes, you should definitely take the small hike up to Rocher des Doms for the view of the Pont, the Rhone river, the palace and the rest of beautiful Avignon. It is a good place to have a seat and hang out for a while. Check out the grottoes... More

We have stopped off here so often for an ice or a cold drink. The people who run the cafe are really friendly and relaxed and it's such a lovely place to chill out and watch the ducks before wandering off to see the views.

Been to Avignon before but missed this lovely park on top of the hill. It's a bit of a climb but can be made easier by walking up the longer switch backs. Parts are in shade which makes it even more pleasurable in hot weather and the views from the top do not disappoint.
