This lush garden behind the Palais des Papes overlooks the Rhone, the pont d'Avignon, and Villeneuve. Wonderful spot for a picnic.

The views from the Rocher des Doms are great, but the thing my kids loved was the pedal-powered contraptions available for hire on weekends, Wednesday afternoons and holidays. Smaller kids can get around in a kind of trotting gig with wheeled horse out front, while older kids have pedal powered cars to zoom around in. I am sure the odd tourist gets skittled by an out of control kid, but my little darlings certainly had a ball. PS there is also a fairy floss vendor so they can get really hyped up

Nice park. Smaller than I expected it to be, but interesting and good views. At least it wasn't as steep and far to get to the top as I was expecting.

We found these gardens more beautiful and worthwhile than the interior of Palais des Papes. Pretty views of the surrounding area, including across the Rhone. They also have a little sandwich shop at the top. There are a lot of stairs so it was a decent walk.

Beautiful park next to the Palais de Papes, worth a walk thru and a great spot to watch the sunset. There is a restaurant in the middle, but it was closed when we were there on a Tuesday.
