Avignon, Vaucluse
Avignon is a city in southern France, situated on the left bank of the Rhone about 140 miles
south of Lyon. The major attraction in Avignon is of course the Palais des Papes, and it is indeed
well worth a visit. But the town centre is also very attractive, so if you go there, don't miss it !!

We are in the middle of redesiging all our web pages, including
removing much advertising which we know can be annoying. As a
result many pages - like this one - are not as we would like. Please
bear with us, it takes time and we have about 1400 pages to work on.
