We made a point of finding this little spot to take pics of views and relax....a bit of a walk up beside the Palais but worth a look if you have a half hour to spare during your visit to Avignon.

This is a lovely garden which affords superb views of the opposite bank looked out the the fort at Villeneuve des Avignon. There is a small cafe and they have little pedal bikes for young children.

We found this by accident, sort of got a bit lost looking for the Pont D'Avignon! It's gorgeous, ponds, waterfalls, a little lake and lots of little gardens, a beautiful sort of secret herb garden where we sat and had an ice cream in the...More

There are few open spaces inside the walls of the city. This is the best, with views over the river Rhone. Come here with a picnic, relax, enjoy the view, wander round the gardens - don't expect a botanical garden, and take the stairs down...More

A short walk uphill from the Pope's Palace and the Petite Palace, this has a commanding view of the city and up and down the Rhone. A small park with pond and ducks, shaded sitting areas and a restaurant. Well-worth a visit.

We visited the Papal Palace and bridge at Avignon, and at the end of the day went up the hill to the cathedral. Next to it was this lovely little park on the top with beautiful views of the river and bridge from the heights....More
