Atop the Rocher des Doms, is the Jardin des Doms from which Greater Avignon and the French Alps can be clearly seen. For anyone spending more than a few days in Avignon, this is a must see.

A lovely walk past the popes palace with great places for chatting and taking in the spectacular views. Sunset from here is simply breathtaking.
A playground and grotto exist as well. So take your time and soak it all in . Free of charge

This is a standout attraction if you are staying in or visiting Avignon with young children. There are few green public parks within the city walls, making Rocher des Doms all the more valuable. Kids can run around, check out the fish in the grotto, enjoy the playground or burn around on the 'pedal horses' (can be hired for a small fee). The views over Provence are very pretty and you can see 360 degrees from the highest point. There is a cafe near the duck pond for the obligatory ice cream, but I wouldn't recommend the coffee... yuk. All in all a nice spot to escape the Avignon cobblestones.

Avignon is a walled-in and densely populated city; this is the nicest park in the city; and the highest point and best place to take in the vistas. A visit to Avignon is not complete without a stop here.

The views are great over the town, river and distant hills.
It's a bit scruffy and the loos are dire so go to a cafe first!
We take all our visitors there and everyone enjoys the trip. It is uphill but easily so.
