OverviewHide
Step back to The Middle Ages as you discover the Papal history and awe-inspiring landmarks of legendary Avignon. In the 14th century this was the center of the Roman Catholic faith and, though its seat of papal influence was relatively short lived, the ecclesiastical monuments left behind are awe-inspiring. You'll follow your local guide on a narrated walk that winds along cobblestone streets to reach the Palace of the Popes, one of the largest Gothic wonders in all of Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Next door looms the 12th-century Avignon Cathedral, crowned by a gilded state of the Virgin Mary. Learn about the city's history as you step back in time, following along the medieval ramparts and narrow streets of its historic center. After the guided visit, enjoy approximately 3 hours of free time for lunch on your own and/or further independent exploration.
