Pont d'Avignon, Avignon

3.6
Pont d'Avignon was built in the late 12th century, and was originally 900 m (2,950 ft) long, with arches larger than any other Roman bridge of that era. Although the bridge has been rebuilt many times, it has gradually lost arches since the first time it was damaged in a siege, in 1226. Today, only four of the original 22 arches remain.

  • A good time to discover this piece of monument. The interactive mini tablets are a plus. The pack with the popes' palace allows you to pay less for the bridge visit and you can spread it out over 2 consecutive days. To do without hesitation.

  • (3) with the price of admission to the Palace of the Popes. Very famous because of the song so if it tells you to go and sing and dance on the Avignon Bridge do not hesitate.

  • We were charged 4 Euros to see the bridge on student discount. The normal rate is 5 Euros per person. It's the remains of the bridge that was built many centuries ago by a shepherd with help from the locals. They give you a device after you pay that tells you the history of different objects and places that are on the bridge. It's worth seeing but I don't see why charge 5 Euros for it. It should be free.
  • Beautiful place during the day. Around this object there are great views and good routes for jogging and walking... Form my personal opinion, have eyes wide open after sunset. Definitely must see in Avignion. Just few minutes walk from there there famous fortifications in Avignon and Pope's Palace.
