Avignon Palais des Papes, Bridge

Papel Palace in Avignon

A divine day at Avignon’s Popes’ Palace.

With more than 3½ acres of floor space, the Popes’ Palace is the biggest Gothic palace in Europe- the equivalent of 4 Gothic cathedrals. And the Saint Benezet Bridge is the oldest structure on the Rhone between Lyon and the sea in the twelfth century. Clearly, these spectacles have awaited you for centuries. This passport to Avignon’s World Heritage wonders includes one-day admission to the Palace and Bridge,  and an audio-guided tour available in 7 languages. At the Palace, you’ll stroll through over 20 rooms visiting scenes of historic papal events, tour the pope’s private chambers and come face to face with the frescoes of 12th century Italian artist Matteo Giovannetti. At the scenic bridge you’ll see four of the initial 22 arches that remain intact today. Simply, a heavenly addition to a most divine day.

Here’s what’s included:

    • One-day entrance to Avignon Palais des Papes.
    • Access to the famous Saint Benezet Bridge.
    • Audio guide commentary available in English, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese and Norwegian.
