The papal city has been a metropolis on the Rhône since the Middle Ages. The old town is dominated by the massive, fortified Papal Palace. The different churches crowd within the old city wall. Today, modern life pulsates within the fortified walls. Avignon and its counterpart on the other side of the river, Villeneuve lez Avignon, invite to many cultural events in the year.
So there is plenty of variety here. Shopping, strolling, theatre, music, everything that is desired, can be converted into reality in Avignon.
