After having visited the Pont St Benezet and toured the Palais des Papes, there is nothing more relaxing to complete the day than a stroll in the beautiful spaces of Rocher des Doms. We were lucky to happen on the gardens in their awesome autumnal...More

Interesting area with good views of the river and Pont D’Avignon as well as the old and new towns. Nice restaurant in the middle. Avoid the public toilets they are awful.

We really enjoyed the walk around that garden, the view is awesome. It is situated in center of city so, you can also visit some other touristic attractions in your way. Palais-de-Pope is near it.

Walk up past the Pope's Palace and into the gardens. There are lots of great viewpoints and you can see all the way to Mount Ventoux on a clear day. You can see the Avignon bridge, Rhone river and all that surrounds Avignon. There is...More
