Avignon palais des papes

What is the charm of Avignon? It is hard to say as its assets are many …

Without doubt, its blue sky and shady lanes which shelter charming cafes where one can cool off in the hot hours of the day, while listening to the song of the cicadas. No doubt also for its architectural beauty, the ramparts that surround the city and the imposing Palais des Papes dominating the heart of the city. But if Avignon is so famous around the world, it is without a doubt for the oldest and most famous theater festival that it has hosted for 70 years and which annually attracts more than 130,000 spectators.

Whether for its heritage, its cultural dynamic or the relaxed pace of life, Avignon is the city in Provence that you won’t want to miss!
