While you're there

Avignon, the city of Popes

Avignon is located in the Provence region, on the left flank of the Rhône River and is home to more than 500,000 people. Avignon can be reached from main cities like Paris (2h40 trip), Lyon (1h trip) or Marseille (30 minutes trip).

Avignon invites you to share its lifestyle and superb heritage. With its bridge, the Palace of the Popes, testimony to its prestigious past as Capital of Christianity in the Middle Ages, Avignon offers grandiose architecture, with several monuments ranked among UNESCO’s World Heritage. Avignon offers numerous possibilities for sightseeing, activities and events. Tourists can also discover plenty of attractive shops, Provençal cooking, local specialities and the Côtes du Rhône wines… The Mont Ventoux, the lavender fields and all the beauty of Provence is on the doorstep of Avignon.


The unavoidable landmark in Avignon would be the Palais des Papes which was the Popes’ residence in the 14th Century. It is the most important gothic palace in Europe and is ranked by UNESCO as a World heritage site. Visitors can discover 25 different rooms: reception halls, cloister, chapels and the Pope’s private apartment with invaluable frescoes. The Palais des Papes is located in the old quarter, in the heart of Avignon. Next to it, you will discover the Musée du Petit Palais, a unique museum in Europe with over 300 Italian paintings from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. While you are there, do not miss the visit of the Rocher des Doms garden, which overlooks the Rhône River and offers a scenic view. Behind the Musée du Petit Palais, you will find the Pont Saint Bénézet, a bridge of legend, built in the 12th century before the common era and also classified as a UNESCO World heritage site.

The originality and the diversity of events characterize the Avignon way of life. When you arrive, ask for Rendez-Vous, the monthly events calendar of Avignon published by the Avignon tourist office. You will find in it all the current events: exhibitions, concerts, festivals, lectures, walks and of course theatres. Avignon has an opera and many permanent theatres which offer quality shows all year round.

In the summer, Avignon has been the international meeting point for contemporary creation for over 60 years. The Festival d’Avignon is one of the oldest and most famous theatre festivals in the world.

Avignon possesses treasures of craftsmanship and small shops that offer a wide selection of olive oils, honey from Provence, nougat, chocolates and Côte du Rhône wines. Don’t forget to taste the speciality of the city - the Papalines, a delicacy composed of chocolate and oregano liqueur.

You are in Provence! Markets are part of the lifestyle. Open in the morning, Tuesday to Sunday, the covered market, les Halles, is a place where you will find local products: fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, olive oil and other cookery specialities of Provence. You can also walk round a refreshing and charming flower market or an antique market on one of the squares.

Customer reviews

  • "Diana and David trip"    
    We enjoyed our train journey and found the whole experience a fantastic package...a bit confusing however for overseas tourists like us who weren't aware that Avignon has TWO train staions. We nearly went to the wrong one i.e. TGV Station.  
  • "A pleasant trip"    
    Counter staff friendly and helpful especially that they can spek English.  
  • "Luggage bin too small"    
    It was fast but there were just too many stops on the way to Marseille. The luggage storage was too small for the number of passengers in the coach, especially with some travellers who have big suitcases.  
  • "TGV Avignon to Paris"    
    Family of three, mother and two adult daughters enjoyed the efficiency of the TGV from Avignon Centre to Paris. The train was on time, it was comfortable, and fast.  
  • "Excellent"    
    We thought the train service was excellent and the train was very comfortable. One suggestion is that you have a help line which is well publicised. We had a query and struggled to get assistance in English.  
  • "Excellent service"    
    Perfect to suit my schedule and budget  
  • "euro trip by train"    
    excellent in all aspects. full 5 *s  
  • "Flawless"    
    Beautiful train station in Paris. Easy to figure out which train to board. On time and comfortable. Great experience. Best of all was able to book it all online.  
  • "Good"    
    Comfortable trip. The toilets could be cleaner  
  • "Good punctual service"    
    I travelled second class on TER from La Brillanne Oraison to Briancon. It was a punctual, efficient service. The second class carriage was sufficient but not luxurious.  
  • "Easy trip in France."    
    Its easy to order the tickets online. And no problem to get on the train at all. 簡單,方便,快捷 Traveller from HKG.  
  • "Very Efficient"    
    The train was a good value and was on time, comfortable and easy for a non-French speaking customer.  
  • "Value for money"    
    The price of the tickets we got were very good deals. The train was comfort and convenience.  
  • "Great way to Travel "    
    Everything was great except for no wi-fi on train  
  • "Helped by Good Staff"    
    A big thank you to TGV staff as I had made a mistake with our booking and instead of departing from Avignon Central, we had departed from Gare TGV in Avignon. I did not know there were 2 stations. Staff managed to get us on the next TGV from Gare TGV and all went very well. The trip was fast and good. It is a highly recommendable mode of transport!
