Lovely park and no doubt fabulous in summer but even doing it in winter the place is spectacular and the views across the Rhone and to pre-medieval time "France" awesome. Took 45-60 minutes and was a lovely walk around. Can almost feel the Popes walking around taking it all in - recommended.

This high-point gives 360-degree views of Avignon and the Rhône River. Located near the Palais des Papes it is easily accessible with a slight climb. It is child-friendly and has lots of benches for sitting and enjoying the panoramic views.

Spectacular views of the famous bridge of the river and the area across the city. This is a relaxing and deeply contemplative place.

Don't be daunted by what appears to be a steep climb. I have joint issues, and I made it going slowly. The view is worth it! You can see all sides of the Rhone River, Villeneuve across the river, and the snow-capped mountains in the distance. The park is lovely also, with a pretty duck-filled lake and a playground for...

The views are spectacular, particularly of the bridge and the river. The whole place has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere - the ideal place to chill, people watch and catch some sun. To be honest I could have spent the whole afternoon there.

The gardens next to Palais des Papes are quiet and relaxing (at least in the off season). Fountains, ducks and lots of paths make it enjoyable but the real treat is walking to the edge and looking down on the Rhône, the island, Pont d'Avignon, and the sites all around. Then, take the path that leads down the wall to... More

If you like great views over Avignon, you must choice to visit the Montée du Moulin; it's a strong but a beautiful walk and you must have time; nice for making pictures from the bridge of Avignon, so you can see the no - ending bridge.

Fabulous views of the bridge, island and town (Villeneuve Lès Avignon) across the water. It's also a beautiful walk and park by itself.

Good place to visit if you are in Avignon but not a destination. Audioguide gives a good explanation of the history of the bridge which was damaged/destroyed by the river on numerous occasions. Interesting structure but not nearly as niiteresting as other old structures (e.g Pont du gard and Theatre Antique d'Orange)
