Loved it, took it in as part of our Palais De Popes tour and it is a must do. You can "see" it from Rocher des Doms and from the outside of the Avignon wall but it is worth it to walk it and marvel at what an achievement it was in medieval times. The climatic changes at the end... More

We enjoyed dancing on this famous bridge and had good views up and down the river. Not sure it was worth the price of admission. Probably best to find a multi-site ticket.

Be there, this bridge is the spiritual remain of the old city. You must buy your ticket first, just five euros per person.

Pont Saint-Benezet/Pont d’Avignon named for St Benezet, who insisted the bridge be built, after hearing the voice of God instructing him to do so. Built 12th century it was 920 metres long, with 22 arches, however it was reconstructed numerous times over the centuries, due to siege and flooding, with repairs coming to a halt in the 17th century, the...

Brought me back to my childhood singing and dancing. The views from all around are majestic. The river, the Papal palace, the castles....all of it was simply beautiful.

One of the must-see spots in Avignon. The historical information in the self-guided audio tour is worth the price of admission. The views of and from the bridge are spectacular.

Well who doesn't want to see a bridge built by a shepherd boy who was told by the disembodied voice of Jesus Christ to build it? Especially after he had to perform the miracle of moving a Giant stone from the Church yard that nobody else could move and use it as the first block of the bridge. Beyond even... More

Interestingly I found this fascinating . Not for it's architectural features but for its history and how one person's "visions" could persuade people to build such structures.
