Pont d'Avignon, Avignon

(3.3/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Avignon family vacation planner makes visiting Pont d'Avignon and other Avignon attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Beautiful view of the sunset is worth the visit. Exceeded our expectations. Tip: visit at sunset

  • Walk on the bridge of Avignon after an explanatory film on different phases of destruction by the waters of the Rhone and reconstruction by men, a few steps (from dance?) on a few arches remaining in front of the chapel. That the view is beautiful! Take your group ticket "Palace + bridge" it will be less expensive than separate at each site.

  • Cute bridge that can be seen in 30 minutes. If you have limited time in Avignon, skip it. But we bought the ticket at the Pope's Palace that included entrance. Nice leisurely walk through the park that affords great views. The bridge provides free audio guides in numerous languages.
  • Best to see it from the other side of the river or on the next bridge, so you can capture the reflection of Pont d'Avignon and the mountains behind. Looks like a pretty painting. IG 📷: thearchitectdraws
  • It was fun. Great pictures. Read up about it and its history so you can appreciate it more.
  • They charge you to walk on the bridge. Not sure if it's really worth it. There are better views for free nearby.
  • Very nice historic place. Take the guided tour, accept that you are a tourist and just enjoy the ride.
