Bienvenue à Avignon!
This quiet French city nestled along the Rhône river was home to the papacy in the 14th century, and the regal Palais des Papes still stands tall over the town today. Les Halles d'Avignon will dazzle your senses, where you can easily spend hours wandering this covered market filled with both visually appealing and mouthwatering authentic French food. If your travels lead you here in July, immerse yourself in Europe's greatest drama festival, but the entertainment lasts year round. With everything from intimate, family-run restaurants in quaint squares to world-class theatres, museums and art, you'll want to relax and stay for a while.
