Avignon

Surrounded by towering 14th century ramparts of golden stone, this former papal capital is a charming, romantic city, centring around the Place de l’Horloge, a picturesque square lined with cafes and usually filled with market stalls during the summer months. Palais des Papes is one of Europe’s most striking medieval buildings, particularly at night, when it is stunningly illuminated. For a panoramic view, head for the hilltop Rocher des Doms park, from which you can see the famous Pont d’Avignon. French Travel Service offers a selection of rail and hotel holidays to historic and picturesque Avignon, a great base from which to discover Provence
