Cafés and character

A few cafés and a couple of nice restaurants, handy to everything and character with the canal and water wheels. Shady in summer.

It's a pittoresque street with a very small canal to the right side and some old water mills. It's a interesting walk, but I expected more after reading the reviews here.

The most beautiful street of the city. The canal, the picturesque bars and bistrots. An unforgetable experience.

A very vivid street in summer with theaters, boutiques,shops, and restaurants; the atmosphere in Avignon is the real "Provence" , sud of France; a charming street.

Teinturiers is an interesting street with a good mix of restaurants, book shops and theatres which is very lively during the festival and summer months. In the winter it's very quiet with just a couple of bookshops and restaurants open.

Buzzy and trendy area in Avignon. Lots of restaurants nestled amongst lots of fascinating history. This was the river in which the calico washers dipped their cloths. It was also the public sewer! 2-3 water wheels still visible. Wonderfully atmospheric old church just adds to its charm.

We walked along this street lined with plane trees, looking at the wares for sale. We enjoyed the waterwheels in the stream, went into an unusual church along the way and there were some good looking restaurants also along that road, although we didn't get round to eating there. Good place for people watching and soaking up the atmosphere.

I had the great fortune of being told about this street by the owner of the hotel where I was staying, or I would never have come across it. The textile industry thrived here during the 19th century & the numerous water wheels which drove the machinery are still there. It's a lively neighbourhood & is a beautiful walk.

Going down this narrow street, you can almost feel the history. It's a cobbled street lined with plane trees, and the River Sorgue runs alongside. In a previous incarnation the river was used by cloth-dyers, hence the name of the street.

....to this pretty street and its history and ambience, by far the most attractive in Avignon. It's in a quieter part of the town, where you'll be less affected by the traffic which is rather noticeable in other narrow streets of the town. Some nice coffee shops and restaurants too.
