    Is an island nestled in the River Rhone and considered the largest for many. It's a great place to walk, make a picnic or even relax and enjoy the city centre and the Palais des Papes. You can reach her by a ferry that crosses from one side to the other or even access bridge

    We got the free ferry across the river. We loved the trip. We then had a picnic on the river banks before walking back over the bridge. Highly recommend this. Fantastic views.  more »
