  • We visited on a Saturday morning and had been advised that this provided wonderful panoramic views. We were not disappointed. It would be quite difficult for those with walking / movement difficulties...  more »
  • Ten minutes from the Papal Palace, it is a beautiful and well maintained park. Perfect to relax with a drink. Its vegetation and small pond is to highlight.

  • Was going here accidentally from the Pont d'avignon we entering the fortress up until this place. Beautiful view of the river and the Pont enjoyed from here. You can walk to the old curch/Palace and going down to the parking place.. It so relaxing..
  • Outstanding views of the city and surrounding countryside can be had from this beautifully verdant park. Perched on the highest point of the city it was originally the private retreat of the Palace, which it overlooks. You can zig-zag your way to the top from the Place du Palais in front of the Palace then after exploring the park take the Saint Anne Stairs on the opposite side of the park. This will lead you to the base of the eastern and southern wall of the palace where you can lose yourself in the cool narrow street that will eventually lead you back to the main palace square.
  • Great tourist attraction and AR tablets which are great fun.
  • 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.
