Visit Avignon in 2024

Avignon, set in the heart of Provence, is a historical gem defined by its medieval architecture and artistic heritage. The city reached the pinnacle of its influence in the 14th century when it was the seat of the Catholic popes, a period which endowed it with its grandest monument, the Palais des Papes. Surrounded by medieval ramparts, its cobblestoned streets lead visitors through a journey in time, with private mansions, chapels, and gardens hidden around every corner. The famous Pont d'Avignon, officially known as the Pont Saint-Bénézet, stretches into the Rhône River and is immortalized in the children's song. The city is not just a frozen relic; it comes alive every summer with the Festival d'Avignon, one of the oldest and most famous theater festivals in the world, transforming its historical venues into modern stages.
