Bienvenue to Avignon, a UNESCO World Heritage site set in the midst of the Vaucluse départment in southeast France. Bordered by the Rhone, Avignon is one of the prettiest gateways to the splendours of Provence, with plenty to offer the visitor. A former papal city, it’s a beguiling place, packed medieval ramparts and charming, ancient streets.

Chances are you may already know its famous nursery rhyme ‘Sur le Pont d’Avignon’, or you can simply fall in love with its art collections, streetside cafes, grand architecture, or linger over a café or a coupe in the Place D’Horloge.

Beautiful squares offer welcome shade in the summer months when the famous Festival d’Avignon literally takes over the city. Or take off to the hilltop towns of the nearby Luberon to explore fragrant lavender fields and that very special Provençal light so loved by artists.
