What to do and to visit in Avignon ? For what kind of rate ?
To benefit from a preferential rate on many activities and to visit the 11 monuments and exceptional sites of the city of Avignon, consider downloading your Avignon City Pass. Whether you are on holiday in the area or on a weekend in Avignon, take advantage of lower prices as well as experiences by visiting the must-see sites in the city of the Popes.
The pass allows you to save 54€ on the 24h pass for a cost of 24€.
By scanning a simple QR code, by going directly to the Tourist Office or on their website avignon-tourisme.com, you will be able to buy it and circulate more easily in each of the monuments and take advantage of numerous activities at preferential rates. You will also be able to create your own digital logbook thanks to the numerous suggestions.
What is included in the City Pass are of course the visits to the Palace of the Popes, the Pont Saint Bénézet, otherwise known as the Pont d’Avignon, the Fort Saint André, on the “Kingdom of France” side in Villeneuve les Avignon, the entrance to the Collection Lambert, Museum of Contemporary Art, to the Musée Angladon, more classical but an exceptional private collection with lovely art pieces or the Musée Louis Vouland, Museum of Decorative Arts in a very beautiful town house.
This pass also allows you to benefit from reductions for a guided tour of the city. And if Avignon was told to you… In the company of a guide, you will think of raising your eyes, looking around and why not savour some authentic addresses. Julien, for example, with his food tour, wanders with you in the Halles market, at a chocolate maker’s, a coffee roaster’s and explains to you why the French are so greedy and invites you to be as much !
Olivier and I will always have plenty to suggest.
We regularly work with the city guides or other guides who will be able to invite you on the paths of Provence, make you taste the best wines of the region, invite you to stroll on the typical markets.
You don’t necessarily need to take a car. The train works very well and allows you to reach many tourist destinations such as the city of Arles where the Photographic Encounters take place between June and September each year; the city of Nîmes, perhaps to be avoided if you are agoraphobic during the férias, but which is a marvel of architecture and history; l’Isle sur la Sorgue where the second-hand dealers and antique dealers unpack every weekend or open their shops, caves of Ali Baba…
If you are more of a nature lover, think of the Via Rhôna, which you can cycle along the Rhône, in Avignon of course! Think of the hikes, the Gardens of the Abbey or the Palace of the Popes, the Luberon, the Alpilles, the Camargue perhaps… With all that you will have to see or to do (ah and by the way, a cooking lesson, does that tempt you?!), you will not want to leave us anymore and you will be able to stay longer at les Jardins de Baracane.
Slowdown with us.
