An ancient town center surrounded by medieval ramparts, Avignon is a major city of Provence and a Mediterranean city in the Vaucluse department on the left bank of the Rhône River.
Explore Avignon's surroundings by going to Pont du Gard (in Vers-Pont-du-Gard), Bureau des moniteurs du gard (in Collias) and Chateauneuf-du-Pape (La Cave Famille Perrin, Domaine de Beaurenard, & more). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Palais des Papes, snap pictures at Pont d'Avignon, trek along Le Sentier des Ocres, and indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area.
