    Great History
    Great story behind this bridge and why it was built. It is easily seen from the street. You can also go on the bridge and pay a fee so you can go out and dance on the bridge. Yes I said dance as it is done all the time and there is a story behind that as well. Read up on the history before you go!

    Good.
    The attraction gets 5 stars because you get great value for your dollar! Not only is the bridge itself interesting but it comes with lots of information about it's history and an audioguide for those who want to go further. Bathroom facilties available! And all included in the price of a 17 euro ticket which I got at the papal palace and gardens complex!

    Another underwhelming visit
    After visiting the stunning Pont du Gard in the morning, we visited the Pont D' Avignon in the evening. Well, what a disappointment. All I can say is that the Romans built their bridges far far better that Medievil French engineers. It's worth walking up the banks of the Rhone to see the remaining arches of the bridge but it is quite underwhelming. However as you turn your back on the river and look at the Papal palace and Medievil buildings of Avignon, you are given a visual treat. I suggest you wander through the ancient city's streets , sit outside a cafe or restaurant and soak up the atmosphere.

    Windy visit
    We visited the Pont D’Avignon after a visit to the nearby Palais de Papes. Interesting to see and to learn the history of the bridge which ends in the middle of the Rhone. It was very windy and hot but worth seeing. Great view of the town and the river

An iconic landmark that we had to stop and visit. Access is quick and easy, great audio guide and deceptively easy to spend a lot more time at this attraction than you would expect!

Going out on the bridge , one not only gets a great view of the river and the old city, but gets inspired by the genius, visionary hardworking people who contributed to its existence.

A lot of content considering it is a mildly interesting half bridge associated with a nursery rhyme. I would not have wanted to be on the bridge with a large crowd on a hot summer's day.

If you're here for a short period and have to prioritize your visit stops, move this to the bottom. The bridge has an interesting history but you don't have to walk upon it to learn about it. And it's openly viewable from the paths following the banks of the Rhone. The French who were encouraged as school kids to memorize a bouncy tune about this bridge have a particular affinity for it. But you probably hummed Frere Jacque, so you can choose to listen for the morning bells instead.

Enjoyed finally seeing this bridge we all know from the song. We walked the length of it and listened to the audioguide (free with admission).
