How can a trip to Avignon be complete without visiting the Pont d’Avignon? On a sunny day in November, it was a bit chilly and windy. However, the views were spectacular! Worth the time.

The bridge and tour provide a wonderful background to the story of Avignon. There's a bit to see here, and the views are nice.

To finally walk on the bridge of the famous ditty during one's French classes in the good old school days is a sort of amusing achievement. The bridge itself is a historic landmark; an "I was there" moment. When we visited, the sky, the flowing...More

It’s has a beautiful medieval architecture. If you bought it online with the Palais totally worth it. If not, the entrance only to the pont is 5€ (expensive I think). Better to walk and take photos from across the river.

This strange bridge is worth visit. You will get Access to this bridge with same ticket as to Palais des Papes. With family ticket increase for whole fmily is only one euro. It don't take much time to visit, maybe 15 minutes.

A must see in Avignon, but quite disappointing if you ask me. the bridge has a long history. You get an audio guide on entering the site.

You cannot visit Avignon without seeing the bridge which has featured in the song you probably learned at school. There is a cost associated with it (we bought a joint ticket for the Palais des Papes and the bridge) and you can have an audio...More

We finally found our way down to the Pont d’Avignon. There are very few signs to follow from the Pope’s Palace down to the bridge. A group of students finally showed us the way. Once there you have to pay to enter before you can...More
