“Great views and nice to walk up to”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Well worth the 10 minute walk up from the Popes Palace with stunning views over the Rhone and Pont d'Avignon, and it's free.
Go on a windy day for the full experience!

“Beautiful park, perfect for a picnic”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Take a romantic stroll through this park and then settle in for a picnic from goodies you've picked up from all the delicious food and wine available in town. Lovely view over the Rhone too. Lots of benches to perch.

“nice view”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

It is worth walking up. Very nice view from above. If do do not want to walk, the tourist train could bring you there. Train ride starts from a square in front of Pope's Palace.

“Breathless view”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Very much worth to go up there for the beauty and breathless view of the region.If weather is clement enough, blue sky you can see all surrending including the Mont Ventoux, Aix en Provence,Chateauneuf du Pape. Good tips for couple while tourring the park and feeling romantic, there is a nice hidden area under an arch of leafs, very dark but safe with a bench...nice to be tete a tete.

“Great views and more”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

If you don't get blown away by the powerful wind, this is a must see in Avignon. Views of the Rhone valley including the famous Pont St Benezet are excellent, and the park itself is pleasant and fun to explore.
