I had the opportunity as part of a tour group and we received a full tour. I highly recommend a tour. The architecture and the location are like a trip back seven hundred years. Beautifully maintained and a wonder to behold. As mentioned in previous reviews most of the decorations and the furniture has been removed and this would added greatly to understanding and interpreting the life of the time. That said it is still worth the viewing and the time. There are a lot of stairs and those with trouble walking beware. It is a large palace and it takes at least two hours to walk through. We were there in March and it was not crowded but I have been warned that in spring and summer the crowds can make the tour very difficult. Make sure you also wave time for the area around the palace - while quite commercial it maintains a medieval spirit and the shops and restaurants are great. One thing I have notice too that so many people come to see the palace and bridge they fail fail to realize there is so much more to Avignon. Make a day of it at least!
