We actually weren't planning to walk out on the bridge but the family pass combo tickets to the Palace of the Popes and the Bridge didn't cost more than a few euros more than to just see the Palace so we figured why not just do both. If you were really short on time and missed walking on the bridge,... More

I didn't actually feel the need to go on to the bridge but it was sure a nice piece in my photos you can walk down from the hill above down part of the wall and get great views from above and down by the river.

Despite, transport strikes in France, we were fortunate that the train we had previously booked to Avignon from Nice, was running. The journey is just over three hours, and the train runs along the Cote de Azur for most of the journey, so one gets tantalising glimpses of beaches and the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea. Arriving in Avignon,... More

We picked up some bread, cheese, and tomato and enjoyed a lovely lunch in the chairs along this famous bridge. Gorgeous sights and we found the audio guide interesting!

Made famous by the song, visiting the actual Pond d'Avignon is a must when coming to the city. The visit is very interesting with a good museum and tour. Well worth the time and money.

A great story about this bride from a our guide. It was originally 22 arches crossing the Rhone river and the island in the middle. The builder heard voices saying to build this bridge, but no one believed this would be done. It was done and survived some many years, then fell into disrepair and now only 4 arches are... More

We were in Marseille in last Christmas and visited this plac alongwith the famous Pont Du Gard. . We took 07-10am train from Marseille St Char and reached at Avigaon Centre station at 8 -18 am. It was 75 mins journey from Marseille rail station and the fare was about £12 per head. From the station, we took bus A15... More

Though the bridge is nice, the supporting material on reconstructing what it originally looked like was fascinating.

We got to visit this since it was included in a combi-ticket with the papal palace. The original bridge is washed away a longtime ago. There exists only a partial structure but the audio guide throws up interesting stories and anecdotes to make the trip worthwhile. The background on how the river played a role in commerce for the region... More
