#4 of 19 in Historic Sites in Avignon
Enjoy some of France's true nature at Ile de la Barthelasse, an island in the river Rhone. On one of the largest European river islands, you can try to spot hawks, kites, gulls, ducks, herons, beavers, and rabbits. Walk through orchards full of cherries, apricots, apples, and peaches. To get here, take one of many ferries (or cross the dams) from the main city. Ile de la Barthelasse is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Avignon Edition.

  • I recommend going to Villanueve de Avignon through a previous walk through Ile de la Barthelasse. It crosses for free from Avignon with the boat that departs every 15 minutes in summer.

  • Excellent location about 15m walk to the city walls. 3-4 campsites located on the Isle if that is what you are looking for.  more »
