    Should missed this place, this grimpote one can but worth the detour with a views of the Alpilles, the Mt Ventoux with its snow that we had the pleasure of watching, the bridge of Avignon soon as a great panorama while height and when the sky is clear can see very far. At the centre there is also a beautiful piece of water with ducks that swimming, a cave artificial (I guess) which gives a refreshing atmosphere under the 33 ° he did this AM. Fortunately the descent is more easily.

    Starting from behind the bridge climb a spiral staircase leading on the trail. At the top you get to rock that dominates a 360 degrees panorama. Inside the small playground.

    Arrived at the Palais des Papes and view the row, we opted for a visit to the garden annexe and not regretted it, given the wonderful day. The Park is open daily, and be available to the city is very well maintained. You have a beautiful tour on the river and the bridge and its surroundings. Tip: in slippers!

    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.
