  • Super nice location for walking. Upstairs has a beautiful view of the city, the river and the bridge. Just escape the bathroom, because despite being free there is no cleanup.

  • A garden where it is good to hang out. Fantastic views over the surrounding area. (Villeneuve the Avignon, the bridge, the Rhône and its barges..;)

  • Great service at a beautiful location. The employees were friendly and quick. There is plenty of shadow and the location was absolutely gorgeous. The price was a bit high, but not too high, especially for such a location in a tourism-focused city.
  • Pretty small park near the Papal Palace. To reach it there is a lot of climbing. The park is very pleasant and overlooks the papal palace and the river.
  • Lovely gardens, tinkling fountains and go-cart rides for the kids. A lovely place to spend a hot summer's day.
  • Very picturesque hill top is well worth the climb. There is a nice crepe shop. Get that and a glass of wine and soak in a pleasant afternoon with the ducks in the pond.
  • Nice place to hang out and have a picnic. Can find some nice grassy areas under a tree. Good views of most directions and the half bridge.
