We entered a door in the old wall of the city without really knowing where we were going. After climbing about 1000 steps we arrived in the beautiful park of Rocher des Doms. It was a quiet little paradise, compared to the noise and congestion...More

The climb up to the park is rewarded with excellent views over the local countryside. Offering shade on a hot day and a moment's respite from the commercialism of downtown Avignon, the is a place to cherish.

There are few open spaces inside the walls of the city. This is the best, with views over the river Rhone. Come here with a picnic, relax, enjoy the view, wander round the gardens - don't expect a botanical garden, and take the stairs down...More

A short walk uphill from the Pope's Palace and the Petite Palace, this has a commanding view of the city and up and down the Rhone. A small park with pond and ducks, shaded sitting areas and a restaurant. Well-worth a visit.

A bit of a walk up the hill from the Palais des Papes but worth it. Beautiful gardens, shady places, great views and a cafe. The best view of the pont du Avignon. A place away from the crowds to relax and have a break,...More

In certain times of the year (e.g. May, the air is perfumed with the strong scents of the flowers and because it's quite a hike to get there, there aren't hoards of people!

The gardens provided us with a welcome break from the throngs of tourists in Avignon. There are nice views of the river and a café that we did not visit. The gardens are not extensive or spectacular, but are very pleasant -- with ample bench...More
