Interesting points on audio guided tour. Allow at least 30 minutes to view and hear self-guided audio presentation.

There is saying that Paris is not France, and it could not be true and then when you travel through Provence south towards the Italian border. So many points of interest to see along the way and Avignon is marvellous

A tour of the Pont Benezet (it's official name) will not take you longer than 30 minutes. The audio guide is key in understanding the history of the bridge and does a good job at entertaining while being factual. Tips: - Buy a combo ticket with the Palais des Papes. - there's a staircase connecting the Pont to Rocher des... More

Definitely worth a quick walk from the Palais Des Papes. Beautiful against the backdrop of the river. Quiet and not crowded.

Loved it, took it in as part of our Palais De Popes tour and it is a must do. You can "see" it from Rocher des Doms and from the outside of the Avignon wall but it is worth it to walk it and marvel at what an achievement it was in medieval times. The climatic changes at the end... More

Interesting history and short trip, 30-40 minutes would suffice. Recommend to do if your in Avignon, wouldn't come here for that purpose though
