Overview

Meet your guide in the morning near the Pope’s Palace in central Avignon, and set off on your walking tour of the city’s UNESCO-listed center. Home to the Papacy and the seat of western Christianity in the early 14th century, Avignon is widely considered among the most beautiful cities in the south of France.
Wander along the medieval streets and passageways with your guide and gain insight into the city’s fascinating history. Climb to the top of the ancient city walls and take in magnificent panoramic views of Avignon stretching along the banks of the mighty Rhône River.
Enjoy skip-the-line access to the Pope’s Palace, one of the largest Gothic-style palaces in Europe. Spend around an hour exploring the maze of galleries, chambers and chapels with your guide, and learn how life played out here during the medieval period.
Continue along Avignon’s cobbled streets to the Place de l’Horloge — the main town square. See city highlights such as the theater and the 19th-century city hall, and admire the clock tower for which the square is famous.
Conclude your tour in style with a with a glass of Côtes du Rhône wine in a historical local hostelry. After three hours exploring the heart of ancient Avignon, your walking tour comes to an end in central Avignon.
