But it's not worth the fuss that has been created around this place... But as long as you got there... It's a good walk

Good for views of the area. A pleasant area to sit near a small lake with ducks and a small cafe. Toilet facilities poor.

Close by the Palais des Papes a gently rising walk through well maintained gardens takes you to the Rocher des Doms. Have a coffee at the cafe if you like or simply walk around the perimeter to see the views of Avignon surroundings.

Lovely park-like area close to Palais des Papes where views over the nearby, and distant, scenery can be enjoyed. Refreshments are available and picnic opportunities are numerous. Don't approach from river level - start in Place du Palais to avoid steps.
