What You Can Expect
The Pont d'Avignon (Pont St Benezet) was the first construction over the Rhone river, between Lyon and the Mediterranean sea in the 12th century. The bridge had 22 arches and covered approximately 900 meters linking Villeneuve les Avignon to Avignon. The bridge collapsed in the 17th century and the king did not want to pay for restoring the bridge. Today, the bridge has 4 arches, and is still so famous for the French song "Sur le Pont d'Avignon"

We did the Lavender tour that included a tour of the lavender museum and side trips to Gordes and Rousilon. Small coach and just eight of us made it great. Excellent tour guide who was right on time and very engaging. We did the Papal Palace on our own, which is a must see.
If you're a lover of history, this is a 'must see' in Avignon. It comes with the flexibility of seeing the Pope's Palace at your own pace, as well as the ability to select a half day tour from a good set of choices. On top of this, the guide was very professional and well informed - the mini van was quite modern and comfortable.
It was ok.
