Avignon
City of history, city of spectacle, Avignon leaves no one indifferent.
The passage of the Popes in Avignon has marked its architecture in an impressive way.
Avignon, Palace of the Popes
Behind the superbly preserved ramparts, you will discover the city of the Popes after crossing one of the seven main doors: the Palace of the Popes built in the 14th century and its lively square, the famous Pont d'Avignon, the museums of the Petit Palais and the Palais du Roure.
Avignon, square and ramparts

Stroll through the streets of Avignon! The old alleys, the interior courtyards of the mansions, the restored facades will charm you.
One of the most elegant in the city is rue Joseph Vernet, with the Calvet and Requien museums side by side.
Avignon, museum
Do not miss the Antiques district, the Place de l'Horloge or the covered way which will lead you to the Rocher des Doms.
From the top of the ramparts you will understand why the city of the Popes has become a formidable fortress palace: Avignon overlooks the immense spaces of the Rhone plain, it is the strategic capital of the Rhone valley.
Avignon, cathedral
Avignon is also the capital of the performing arts with its theater festival (created in 1947 by Jean Vilar). It generally takes place between July 10 and August 5.
Nearly 120,000 spectators flock to discover young companies or admire shows and actors with an established reputation who come from France and around the world.
Avignon
The historical settings give these shows (dance, theater and music) a new and often refreshing light. The OFF festival is a real laboratory for young talents and forerunners.
The street shows complete this inimitable atmosphere which is in full swing late at night on the restaurant terraces after the shows, bringing together actors and spectators.
