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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Pont d'Avignon and Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde. Explore Avignon's surroundings by going to Aix-en-Provence (Paroisse Cathédrale Saint Sauveur Aix-en-Provence, Museum Calisson, & more), Pont du Gard (in Vers-Pont-du-Gard) and Marseille (Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations & The Panier). Dedicate the 26th (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Palais des Papes, see the interesting displays at Musee Angladon, admire the masterpieces at Carrieres des Lumieres, and explore the historical opulence of Chateau des Baux de Provence.
