Learn the History Behind Avignon’s Centuries Old Landmarks

Explore the historical center of Avignon on a 3-hour walking tour with your English-speaking guide. Climbing up to the top of the fortified medieval city walls, discover Avignon stretching in all its beauty along the Rhône river. Discover the rich historical past of Avignon where the papacy established in the early 14C. Enjoy skip-the-line access and follow your guide inside the Popes’ Palace (entrance ticket included), the largest Gothic-styled Palace in Europe. In this maze of galleries, chambers and chapels, imagine its luxurious furnishing and sumptuous decoration from the medieval period. Walking on the cobbled streets to the Place de l’Horloge, find out about the secret of the painted windows. See the town hall topped with its clock tower, and the theatre. Your tour will end up with a glass of Côtes du Rhône wine served in a historical place, mostly known by the locals.
