Discover Avignon and surroundings by car
During the 14th century, the southern city of France was the capital of Christianity and is of great historical and cultural importance due to the large amount of infrastructure that’s been preserved from the period. Much of Avignon has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site including the Palais des Papes, Pont d’Avignon, Petit Palais and Notre-Dame des Doms – all of which are well-worth a visit.
Other must-see attractions include Avignon’s main square, Place de l’Horloge, where you’ll find everything from the city hall to the opera house as well as Basilique Saint-Pierre d’Avignon – a stunning gothic church dating back to the 1300s. You may also fancy a trip to Île de la Barthelasse, one of Europe’s largest river islands connected to the city by the Pont Daladier.
Picnics by the Rhône River are a delight if the weather permits and if you’re in the mood for an adventure, how about taking a trip to Montpellier or Marseille – both within easy driving distance of Avignon? You could even take a detour to the Camargue National Reserve just over 50 kilometres from Avignon city centre.
Driving in Avignon
Throughout France, people drive on the right and overtake on the left, so keep this in mind if you’re from a country where this rule is reversed. You’ll find everything from winding country roads here to both tolled and toll-free motorways, so it’s up to you whether you want to take the scenic or fast route. Always make sure you follow local road signs.
Avignon is a bustling city and therefore parking can be a little on the tricky side. On-street parking is limited, so you may prefer to leave your vehicle in convenient and safe lots such as the St. Charles parking lot on Boulevard St. Roche or Avenue du Blanchissage, which is located just outside city walls near the Avignon Central Rail Station.
