On the banks of the Rhône, whose raging torrents smashed down the arches of the Saint Bénezet bridge, stands Avignon, the city of the Popes that used to be called “Avenio”, which means “town of violent winds”. Reminders of the seven Popes who were based here come in the shape of the imposing palace and a variety of church towers belonging to the churches and convents built at that time. This army of clocks was the reason for which Frédéric Mistral called the city the “Sonneuse de joie” (peal of joy).

Strolling through the old city is the perfect way to soak up the atmosphere. You can also use the self-service bicycles or the little tourist train for exploring the banks of the Rhône.
