Create an itinerary including Pont d'Avignon
Pont d'Avignon was built in the late 12th century, and was originally 900 m (2,950 ft) long, with arches larger than any other Roman bridge of that era. Although the bridge has been rebuilt many times, it has gradually lost arches since the first time it was damaged in a siege, in 1226. Today, only four of the original 22 arches remain.

  • Words cannot describe this magnificent structure. You have to see it to believe it. Romans engineering must have been equal to the Greeks - fantastic. You must go and see what's left of this...

  • I grew up singing the song, so couldn't go to Avignon and NOT see the bridge. 5 Euro was a small price to pay to walk on this historic site. For me it was a MUST DO!

  • Torso of old and much longer bridge. Famous due to popular song. There were pretty strict security. Because there is actually nothing interesting I consider it a disappointment. Yet it a-must-see place.
  • Bof. They did some effort to explain the story with audio guide. Not too expensive 5 euro but really not that interesting. Better looking at that bridge elsewhere rather than going on it
