Explore the old city either on foot or on the little tourist train !!
In addition to the prestigious Palais des Papes, the famous Pont d’Avignon and the still intact ramparts that encircle the city, there are also numerous other treasures to be discovered as you stroll through the old streets.
Discover typical streets : the rue des Teinturiers (the Dyers street) with its paddle wheels on the Sorgue canal which flows through the city, the numerous streets and squares paved with cobblestones (stones from the Rhône), all the little streets still named after the ancient professions or corporations of the Middle Ages, or the beautiful façades of the private mansions built in the 18th and 19th centuries. You will be surprised by the charm of the numerous little squares that so well reflect the true lifestyle in Provence...
4 walks (the « Doms Walk », the « Joseph Vernet Walk », the « Teinturiers Walk », the « Carreterie Walk ») enhance the appeal of the city, the churches, the chapels, the old streets and private mansions. The monuments you see on your way as you walk through the city have been signposted including their historical background, and the various circuits have been indicated on the ground with coloured markers.
