Pont d'Avignon, Avignon

3.6
Pont d'Avignon was built in the late 12th century, and was originally 900 m (2,950 ft) long, with arches larger than any other Roman bridge of that era. Although the bridge has been rebuilt many times, it has gradually lost arches since the first time it was damaged in a siege, in 1226. Today, only four of the original 22 arches remain.

  • Don't spend any money on this. The bridge is nice to look at from a distance, but has hardly anything to add while on it. In contradiction to the audio guide from Palais des Papes, this audio guide....  more »
  • Costs 10 Euros to go on bridge. Explanations of history in French and English. What it lacks is an audio visual pre visit orientation. Pleasantly walk on bridge  more »
  • You obviously can't go to Avignon without visiting the famous bridge. You pay 5€ to access the bridge but get an audio guide with a lot of information on the bridge, its construction and importance...  more »

  • We were charged 4 Euros to see the bridge on student discount. The normal rate is 5 Euros per person. It's the remains of the bridge that was built many centuries ago by a shepherd with help from the locals. They give you a device after you pay that tells you the history of different objects and places that are on the bridge. It's worth seeing but I don't see why charge 5 Euros for it. It should be free.
  • Beautiful place during the day. Around this object there are great views and good routes for jogging and walking... Form my personal opinion, have eyes wide open after sunset. Definitely must see in Avignion. Just few minutes walk from there there famous fortifications in Avignon and Pope's Palace.
  • Must use the audio guide to know the history of the bridge and why. Don’t miss the audio guide for listening to the Avignon traditional song. And also don’t miss out to the other side of the bank to see the bridge, cathedral and Palais in a frame.
  • It'll be nice when it's finished. Joking aside, it's a pleasant location and you know you want to dance on it.
  • Did you know there is a song about this place? Look it up! I can't get the song out of my head like I can't get Avignon out of my head. Southern France is magical in a way that is impossible to describe. Lavender fields, citrus fruits, and cozy towns surround this impressive structure.
