The town

 

Avignon is about 12 kms / 8 miles from Saint Rémy de Provence and is an ideal place to stay before or after the course.
Known as the City of Popes, Avignon was a Catholic stronghold during the 14th century, and home to several popes during the medieval period. The splendid "Palais des Papes" is a major attraction for visitors and one of Europe's most impressive buildings. Avignon is perhaps known best for the Pont Saint Benezet, the bridge of Avignon immortalised in the familiar nursery rhyme, originally built in the 12th century to cross the Rhone. Present day Avignon is a busy town with many old buildings and narrow streets, plenty of shops, cafes and attractive squares. There are several art galleries and museums, showing a wide range of subjects. The annual Festival d'Avignon celebrates music, drama and dance, and now has an international reputation. Avignon, on the banks of the Rhone, is a beautiful city, full of character and rich in history. It is situated 12kms / 8 miles from the centre. Avignon has a wide range of hotels and restaurants.
