We had a great time here. There was sculptures and artwork in abundance with something to appeal to everyone's taste. As with most galleries and museums in France there is a lack of English signage which is a disappointment as I would have loved to...More

This was our first stop in Avignon, just off the main commercial street that leads from the train station to the Palais des Papes. Long-standing museum with a great collection of European paintings, mainly 18th century French but lots of Italian and Dutch paintings too....More

Out for a walk and popped in for a quick look, our quick look took us over an hour and well worth it. The museum has some amazing art, sculptures and Egyptian artefacts.

Not much choice since most museums were closed on Mon, but plesantly surprised particularly the painting of Pont d'Avignon from 1700's. Other paintings were of good quality. Not a wasted time.

Be sure to get the Pass at the Tourist Office before you go. Present the Pass and have it stamped and pay full price admission. After that the fees are reduced. The Calvet is next to the Requien on Joseph Vernet. It has a beautiful...More
