The capital city of the Vaucluse region is most known for its incredibly well preserved architecture, tangible history and epic events. While the dramatic medieval wall that encircles the old city is an impressive sight, it is the charming boutique-lined streets, complete with superb restaurants and leafy squares that makes visitors look twice. An artist’s mecca, the city also has a number of impressive museums including the famed Musee de Petit Palais, which exhibits Italian religious paintings by artists like Botticelli, Carpaccio and Giovanni di Paolo. The shining star in the city’s cultural calendar is the annual Avignon Festival, the largest in France, where the world’s greatest actors in contemporary performing arts descend onto the French city for several weeks in July.

  • Our tips for Avignon Our tips for Avignon
    • Take a ride. When weighing up what to do in Avignon, one can’t look past the free Navette Fluviale (shuttle boat) that crosses the Rhône daily. With Avignon sitting on the bank of the River Rhone, all of the city’s best sights can be enjoyed from the comfort of this boat.
    • Make a day out of it. The city is the perfect base for visiting the beautiful smaller villages of the region. Take an Avignon day trip to the stunning villages of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and Fontaine de Vaucluse.
    • Step back in time. Simple, but true – one of the best things to do in Avignon is to go for a simple stroll. With the ancient wall and medieval ramparts (dating back to the 1300’s!) still surrounding the city, a wander here reveals the living history of the region.
  • Good to know Good to know
    Best Time To Visit With the world-famous Avignon Festival opening its doors to visitors in July and the Instagram-worthy lavender fields in bloom nearby, summer is the obvious choice for most tourists. However, for those seeking a quieter Avignon sightseeing experience, pack your bags in autumn, when the weather is usually warm, the rolling hills enjoys hints of orange and gold and the Avignon tour groups are minimal.
    Getting Around Navigating Avignon can prove testing. Keep these top tips handy so you can get around with ease…
    • Although the lack of signposts and impatient local drivers can prove testing, visiting all the Avignon attractions is all the easier with a car.
    • Travellers can hire vehicles from most of the major car-hire companies at the Avignon airport, just 8km southeast of the city centre.
    • If you’re staying centrally, the city’s bus system is comprehensive and easy to use, while hiring a bike is also a fun way of exploring on your Avignon day tours.
    Stay Safe Avignon is a relatively safe city. Keep these travel tips in tow so your trip can go off without a hitch…
    • There is relatively little crime in Avignon, though as the region is a popular tourist destination, pick pocketing and bag snatching does occur. Visitors should keep their valuables close at all times.
    • Be careful when walking around the city after dark. Walking only in well-lit streets and sticking with your group is always sensible when you find yourself in unfamiliar surroundings.
    • In any emergency, dial 112.
