Pleasant hilltop gardens with great views down towards the river and the pont d'Avignon. Definitely worth a wander round, and I would also recommend the cafe, where we had a nice coffee. Very nicely situated by a duck pond. As one previous reviewer has commented,...More

Beautiful gardens, nice ramps, stunning views over the Rhône river, parts of Avignon and its most famous bridges. At the top there is a nice café under the trees by the duck pond. A very pleasant walk, perfect location for some extra pictures. Be mindful,...More

Head there to get the lay of the surroundings, then leave. The only positive was just that, to see where the pont d’avignon had once ended. Otherwise not really worth the (very limited) effort.

A nice park covering a hill above Rhona river. There is a beautiful view of Pont d'Avignon, opposite Villeneuve-lès-Avignon and the river itself. Full-grown trees offer welcome shade on hot summer days.

Great spot to overlook and take potos of the palace, churches, Rhone River, and distant sights. Bring a zoom len camera & / or Binoculars.

From the river, hiking up to the Rocher des Doms is another way to the Pope Palace. The garden is a good break from all the historical places and experience the life of locals. The view atop is also excellent!.

We climbed the steps all the way from the river. Lovely views all the way up. This park gives breathtaking views of Avignon and the surrounding areas. The view of mount Ventoux is special. A nice change from the history and popes....

Others have said it all before me, but to add my little bit... if you have already been to the cathedral and climbed all those steps you already half way there. Very pretty and the wrap around View is outstanding. Very lovely. Great to do...More
