Full description
Walk through one of the most charming cities in southern France on this 2-hour tour of Avignon. See the impressive Palace of the Popes and the famous bridge at Pont St. Bénezet as you explore the city's sidewalk cafes, elegant squares, and delightful tree lined boulevards. Surrounded by imposing medieval walls, Avignon was the capital of Christendom in the 14th century, with seven successive popes making the city their home. In an attempt to rival Rome's Papacy, Avignon's architects designed many of the city's magnificent features, including the superbly preserved defensive walls and the monumental Palace of the Popes ̶ one of the most important medieval Gothic buildings in Europe. From lesser-known attractions in Avignon to its most renowned sites, you will be accompanied by an expert local guide who will share with you the history and secrets of this UNESCO World Heritage listed city.

I had a perfect guide!

It was a problem to find the guide around meeting point as the agency provided the wrong telephone number of mine and the lady couldn’t contact me until I wrote the message to them asking where is tge guide. The guide was perfect! Very knowledgeable and made us very good excursion! We were very satisfied! The thing that we were two of us only and the price was 220€ for two hours ... a bit expensive

Claude was a very knowledgeable guide who showed us the highlights of the old city in Avignon. We got some interesting history plus information about local and current highlights.

friendly, but not enough on the group

in the hot temperatures you would have to make the tour a little shorter or plan cooler stations; our group was actually too large or the city guide spoke too quietly or selected locations that were too loud; too many years that you can't remember anyway ...
