Promenade through historic districts

Cultural treasures in Avignon’s museums
The centre of Avignon is a UNESCO World Heritage site and it’s all there for you to explore. Get lost in the streets of houses with their exposed stone fronts. Climb staircases between ancient passageways and take the time to explore medieval squares. The joyous atmosphere of café terraces can be found neighbouring majestic sites like Notre-Dame des Doms cathedral or the Palais des Papes. Just yards away, the Rocher des Doms park has an attractive, English-style garden. You will admire the statues which add to the beauty of the watercourses. Take a walk among the trees with an ice cream in your hand, in traditional Avignon style. You can get right to the top of the garden, with its views over the old town and the banks of the Rhone.
In this town, museums are set up inside palaces or grand town houses. They have top notch art collections. You will find this out for yourself when you discover the Musée du Petit Palais and its ancient religious paintings. The same goes for the Musée Calvet, which is dedicated to secular art from the 15th to 20th centuries. There’s always something to marvel at in the City of Popes. At the crossroads of the old town, you’ll often spot statues of the Virgin Mary, the patron saint when the town had its popes. The trompe-l’œil frescos on the façades are also worth a look. They depict landmark productions in the history of Avignon’s theatre festival.
