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.
Visit Abbaye Notre-Dame de Senanque and Pont d'Avignon for their historical value. Get some cultural insight at Musee Angladon and Palais des Papes. Change things up with these side-trips from Avignon: Amphitheatre (les Arenes) (in Arles), Carrieres des Lumieres (in Les Baux de Provence) and Monastery Saint-Paul de Mausole (in Saint-Remy-de-Provence). Dedicate the 5th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: take in the views from Pont du Gard, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint Pierre, get to know the fascinating history of Street of Dyers (Rue de Teinturiers), and make a trip to Place Crillon.
