"Sur le Pont d'Avignon" ... everyone knows this song! This is of course one of the famous places to visit in Avignon. The "Palais des Papes" is also worth a visit. The garden of the palace is free to visit; it offers a beautiful view of the Rhone and Mont Ventoux. You can also take the tourist train to see all the sights. Nice to visit are "les halles" (only in the morning) - the covered fresh market of Avignon - with lots of goodies! In July Avignon is also known for its "Festival d'Avignon", a street theater festival. Everywhere you can enjoy free performances for young and old - an absolute must!
