This is of course a famous bridge in song but although slightly interesting is better viewed from below or even better above from the Rocher des Doms (a park situated on the hill above the Popes Palace). Slightly surprised to hear some people complain that...More

The entrance to the site catches you by surprise and was not very busy when we visited. Access was quite easy and use of the audio commentary was simple to understand. The walk through is good and the short audiovisual showing the work of a...More

As a small child in Belgium we learned to sing this song. It was great to finally be able to sing it on the bridge itself, after more than 40 years. The location is beautiful and has much history.

Joins the list of many other bridges (Tower, Brooklyn, Sydney Harbour, Vecchio etc.) that have captured the worlds collective imagination but sadly doesn't go that far ? Well worth a stroll over what's left and gaze into the fast flowing Rhone !

See great views of Avignon and the Rhone. Have a look inside the tiny chapel. If you don’t want to walk on it, see it from the streets or from above in Rocher des Doms. Just don’t miss this lovely little historic bridge. For me,...More
