The park on top of the city offer a great view on the bridge as well as on the all city center. There are nice cafe and a lot of space for you to relax drinking wine or just enjoying !

Le Rocher des Doms is a really nice park over the Popes' Palace, 10 min by walk. This is the highest view point in Avignon. The park has a lot of trees, bench, table, a small lake, nice places to take a drink a an ice cream, that's the perfect place for a mid day stop, a pic-nic or even... More

first visit the pont on river level, then cross the street and walk up the stone stairs to see the old city wall and get a nice view of the pont from above.

Gardens are on a high point above the river with lovely views of the surrounding area. You can see Mont Ventoux on a clear day. If its really hot there are trees that offer good shade. Park offers good views of the pont d'avignon,without having to pay to go onto the bridge

We walked up the hard way, up the steps, which was hard on a hot day but it was worth for the view of Avignon from the top. Plenty of shady places to sit plus a cafe but we didn't go there. A favourite meeting place for the French as there were lots of people there of all ages.

Off the palais des papes you have to climb up a litte hill to get to the Rocher des Doms and there you can have a beautiful view of the Rhone River and the castle of Villeneuve les Avignons. A little train can take you there if you are too tired to walk!

This is my husband's favourite place in Avignon. It is one of the first places we walk to when we arrive and one of the last places we visit before we leave - as well as most days in between. A lovely walk along the winding road from the Palais des Papes, lined with trees and flowers, or a trek... More

Was looking forward to seeing the gardens but was disappointed. We went in August so were expecting crowds but it was packed out. The views were of course brilliant but the gardens were very poor. The grass was in bad condition not that you could see much beneath the baby buggies and picnickers. There were very few flowers and the... More

After a short climb, you reach the nice park with skelters for the kids, a small play garden, bistro with normal prices, fountain and not to forget: extraordinary views!
