Nice landmark

The bridge is a nice landmark, and I would recommend having a walk close to it: you can take nice pictures!

The best thing about this bridge is the well known French song "Sur le pont d’Avignon". The bridge itself is nothing special, really! They charge you to enter the bridge but when you pay you would be disappointed, the best thing you cold do is to look from the distance.

Don't get me wrong: you should go walk over the bridge for sure. But the bridge itself, from distance, offers a much better picture and views than the ones you will get walking over it. Be advised: you will see lots (and I mean LOTS and LOTS) of mosquitoes in some points of the bridge, specially near the center (at... More

It was great to see this bridge during the off season - we had it to ourselves and we had a better view because of the lack of trees/leaves along the water's edge. Of course we danced on the bridge, even though history says they didn't! Recommend buying the combined bridge-palace tickets.

Interesting points on audio guided tour. Allow at least 30 minutes to view and hear self-guided audio presentation.

There is saying that Paris is not France, and it could not be true and then when you travel through Provence south towards the Italian border. So many points of interest to see along the way and Avignon is marvellous

A tour of the Pont Benezet (it's official name) will not take you longer than 30 minutes. The audio guide is key in understanding the history of the bridge and does a good job at entertaining while being factual. Tips: - Buy a combo ticket with the Palais des Papes. - there's a staircase connecting the Pont to Rocher des... More

Definitely worth a quick walk from the Palais Des Papes. Beautiful against the backdrop of the river. Quiet and not crowded.
