  • Walk the street of dyers after seeing a great show. We saunter by discovering nice stalls and drink a little pink on a terrace listening to people pulling tourists to attract them to come and see their room. There is entertainment in the street and it's a pleasure to watch what happens.

  • The street of dyers is more than an enclave out of time and the avenues. She is beautiful, photogenic and so alive. Music comes you, the violin played by a sparkling student and inspired... Some reciters who train before their room, small bistros customer-loving poets. No, this street is not worth the detour, it is the inescapable detour of Avignon. His heart of Ruby, she's life and Art, and the history of textiles, together. A spinning wheel, an artist who declaims, a couple kissing.

  • We just happened to be in Avignon during the festival and it was great fun watching the actors parade up and down the Street of Dyers promoting their shows.  more »
