This is a beautiful park with excellent views of the city and Rhone. I expected a fee for this but it was free. We walked up the cement path to the top. It is the highest point in Avignon from what I could see and...More

OK, this is free and the views across to Mont Ventoux, across Avignon and across the Rhone are pretty good, in terms of a garden, well, it was quite frankly disappointing. There are few flowers, few trees and virtually no birds or insects. It gets...More

After having visited the Pont St Benezet and toured the Palais des Papes, there is nothing more relaxing to complete the day than a stroll in the beautiful spaces of Rocher des Doms. We were lucky to happen on the gardens in their awesome autumnal...More

I was disappointed to find there weren't elaborate gardens in this park. It's quite a long uphill walk and is worthwhile if you're looking for a good place to take pictures overlooking the city and the river, but not for much else.

Interesting area with good views of the river and Pont D’Avignon as well as the old and new towns. Nice restaurant in the middle. Avoid the public toilets they are awful.

This is a nice park area beside the Palais with a great view over the river and Pont d’Avignon. There is a pretty little pond with a small restaurant in a nice shady spot. Did not eat but looked like a nice spot in the...More

We really enjoyed the walk around that garden, the view is awesome. It is situated in center of city so, you can also visit some other touristic attractions in your way. Palais-de-Pope is near it.

Just a short walk uphill from Palais du Papes is a lovely relaxing park with a cafe, ducks and amazing views. Highly recommended

Walk up past the Pope's Palace and into the gardens. There are lots of great viewpoints and you can see all the way to Mount Ventoux on a clear day. You can see the Avignon bridge, Rhone river and all that surrounds Avignon. There is...More
