Make your way through the French countryside for a charming Avignon holiday, filled with stunning architecture and cultural offerings, and home to one of the most romantic bridges in the world. Bask in its history and charm as you wander down the Rhone River taking in the sights of the city, including the Palace of the Popes, one of the largest and most important medieval Gothic buildings in the world. The cathedral of Saint-Pierre d'Avignon, one of France's largest churches, features both Gothic and Romanesque architectural styles, with an interior adorned by paintings dating as far back as the 12th century.
Avignon’s famous bridge, the Pont Saint Benezet, has been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, despite the fact that only four of its original 22 arches remain. This pretty stone bridge is an important symbol in Avignon and even inspired the well-known song ‘On the Bridge of Avignon’. Set at the confluence of two rivers, the city is bordered on two sides by water and surrounded by hills brimming with green spaces and flowers. Experience the beauty of nature while you explore the city's rich history, or simply relax by the river with a glass of wine (or two) to really enjoy your Avignon holiday.
