  • Avignon is a history geeks dream location. It may seem obscure, but it is no less interesting. Well worth the time to visit  more »
  • A good place to see the history of this Papal city from the 14th century. Visited after our tour of the Palais des Papes  more »

  • As others have noted, the collection of early Italian Renaissance paintings is truly excellent. After viewing a dozen rooms of 14th and 15th century masters, the room devoted to Botticelli is startling! Humans with flesh, blood, and mass! And so perfectly lit. Go for the Botticelli’s alone.
  • We were stunned by this place. I have never spent 3 hours in a museum before but you couldn't drag us away! The religious art of the high Middle Ages and the Renaissance blew us away, worth the entrance price ten times over. The statues and paintings (including works by great names such as Botticelli) were stunning. It's a must see.
