GUIDED TOUR OF AVIGNON AND THE PALACE OF THE POPES
Explore the historic center of Avignon and the famous Palace of the Popes
on a fascinating 3-hour guided tour.
Climb to the top of the city's fortified ramparts to discover the gardens of the Rocher des Doms overlooking the Rhône. Discover Avignon's rich cultural heritage: you'll learn that the papacy was established here in the early 14th century. Enjoy a guided tour of the Palais des Papes (entrance ticket included), the largest Gothic-style palace in Europe. In this maze of corridors, rooms and chapels, imagine the luxurious furnishings and sumptuous decor of medieval times. Stroll along the cobbled streets to the Place de l'Horloge, and discover the secret of the painted windows of the theater festival held every July in the city of the Popes. Observe the town hall, topped by its clock, and the municipal theater. Your tour ends with a glass of Côtes du Rhône wine, served in an intimate and historic place known only to the locals. Participants should be able to walk the cobbled streets and climb a significant series of steps to reach the Palais des Papes.
