Choose holiday accommodation in Avignon, at the heart of historic Provence
Avignon is one of southern France's finest walled cities. Headquarters of the Catholic Church before its move to the Vatican, Avignon's most visited site is the medieval Papal Palace. You'll want to take your time exploring the narrow, tangled streets of the old town, where many of Avignon holiday rentals are located. Outside the old town walls, you'll find larger properties, many of which have a view over the remains of the city's medieval wall and the surrounding countryside.
What to eat during your Avignon holiday
Avignon's must-see foodie destination is the huge market at Les Halles. The covered market houses welcome over 40 different stalls, selling everything from oysters, to cheese, and regional delicacies. Pick up ingredients to make a picnic or to enjoy a simple supper at home. Alternatively, take a seat at one of the bars, enjoy a glass of local red wine, and indulge in some people watching.
Famous local Avignon dishes include Pissaladiere, a delicious bread topped with caramelised onion and olives. You'll also find plenty of other Provençal dishes, such as Nicoise Salad, Ratatouille, or the famous Bouillabaisse fish stew. Avignon is also a short drive from the world-famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyards, where you can see the grapes on the vine, taste award-winning wine, and buy souvenirs to take back home.
History and art in Avignon
The most important historic site in Avignon is the Papal Palace. Dating back to the 14th c., the palace is now a museum and exhibition centre. Visitors to the palace can see many elegant and historically fascinating elements, including the pope's private chambers, and wall frescoes by Matteo Giovanetti. Self-guided tours are available in several languages, including English, or you can book a tour with a group guide in French.
Art fans won't want to miss the Musee du Petit Palais. This gallery specialises in primitive and early Renaissance art, and has both a large permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. Entry to all the permanent exhibitions is free of charge.
Family holidays in Avignon
Smaller kids will love a trip on the city's little train, which trundles through town on a 40min circuit that covers the main sights. Avignon's open top bus tour is also a good option for children, with commentary available in English. One of the best museums for kids is the Epicurium, a centre devoted to plants and agriculture. Kids can follow the journey of food from seed to fork, learn about organic principles, or visit the kitchen garden.
For older kids and teens, why not explore the city on a Segway? Follow your guide through the pedestrianised zone in the oldest part of town. Active families can also take to the river Rhone to cool off on hot Provence afternoons. Rent a canoe by the Avignon Bridge, and paddle gently downstream, taking in the skyline as you go.
Evenings out in Avignon
Evenings in Avignon are relaxed and laid-back. A popular way to spend the evening is by taking a dinner cruise while floating down the Rhone river, dining al fresco as the city passes by. The best bars and restaurants are in the old part of town, near the Papal Palace. Clubs don't open until midnight, but the parties carry on until breakfast time.
Avignon city centre – not just history
Most people come to Avignon to see the majestic Papal Palace, the Roman ruins, and the famous Avignon bridge. You could easily spend your entire break within the oldest part of town, taking guided tours and brushing up on your French history. But that is far from all that the city has to offer.
One of Avignon's most peaceful spots is the Rocher des Doms gardens. The views over the river and the old town are spectacular, and it's the perfect place to take a break the bustling city. Just outside the city walls, the Fort of Saint Andre is an additional attraction. Walk along the fort's walls, explore the military museum, or just relax in the garden.
Avignon during the July arts festival
Avignon hosts one of France's foremost arts festivals every July. The main venue for performances and events is the Papal Palace, but in recent years the festival has spread to other areas of the city too. Theatre, cinema, dance, opera, art; whatever your cultural preference, you'll find it represented at the Avignon festival.
The Avignon Festival aims to engage children and young people with the arts, so there are many special screenings, performances, and events for younger audiences. Pick up the young spectator's guide to get an overview of all child-friendly events.
