Where it All Began
The Rhone River
The Rhone River is one of the two most important rivers in Europe. It flows from Lake Geneva in Switzerland west to Lyon and then south through Avignon to the Mediterranean Sea. It is the largest river to flow into the Mediterranean Sea and it also has enormous economic, military ,and social significance. Many bridges that cross the Rhone River is the world-famous Pont d'Avignon Bridge.
Many visitors to France like to take River Cruises along the Rhone River, some of which depart from Avignon.
Avignon is know as the French Vatican.
It is said that Avignon seems to look just like all of Van Gogh's paintings.
Flea and Food Markets in Avignon are quite extravagant and it would be wise to visit one on your trip here!
Avignon is the home of the Palais des Papes! (The palace of the popes)
The Cuisine and Culture
Most of the architecture in Avignon revolves around the Gothic style and is prominent in all of the palaces.
#2 Be wary of anyone around the Palais des Papes area who tries to get you to sign a petition. They also attempt to lie to you just when you leave the Palais des Papes and claim to be working for the Palais des Papes or other authorities in Avignon. The petition and anything else stated is false information. If you sign their petition, they will demand large quantities of money from you.
