In Avignon, the beauty of Provence is on your doorstep. The city is established behind medieval walls at the side of the sparkling Rhone River, and boasts immense natural beauty and fascinating UNESCO World Heritage listed monuments. The city is proud of its papal legacy, centred on the incredible Palais des Papes, where the Pope lived in the 14th Century. Wander the lovely streets of the old centre which are full of artists' galleries, visit the colourful outdoor market on the Place Pie or come during July when the city hums with thousands of visitors to its annual, massive theatre festival.
