General impressions of Avignon

This little city in the south of France is classified as UNESCO world heritage and we understand why. Surrounded by a circular defense wall, the old city is only accessible via a few roads and pedestrian gates.

Around the market place, you find the nice City Hall, the Opera, many restaurants and for the kids an antique carousel. The main landmarks are the Pope's Palace, the Notre Dame church and the Pont de Avignon. At one of the shops, Kristel smells the regional lavender.

Deze kleine stad in het zuiden van Frankrijk is geclassificeerd als UNESCO werelderfgoed en we begrijpen waarom. Omringt door een cirkelvormige verdedigingsmuur is de oude stad slechts toegankelijk via enkele wegen en voetgangerspoorten. 

In de buurt van de markt vind je het stadhuis, de opera, vele restaurants en voor de kinderen een antieke carrousel. De hoofdbezienswaardigheden zijn het Paleis van de Paus, de Notre Dame kerk en de Pont de Avignon. In één van de winkeltjes ruikt Kristel aan de lokale lavendel producten.
