What to expect

Visit two must-see places in Avignon with this combined ticket including entrances to the Palais des Papes and the Pont d'Avignon.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Palais des Papes was built in the 14th century and consists of two buildings: the old palace of Benedict XII and the new palace of Clement VI. Thanks to the HistoPad provided at the beginning of the visit, dive into the Middle Ages and relive the daily life of the first popes of Avignon. During this virtual experience, you will be amazed by the immensity of this largest medieval fortress and the biggest Gothic palace in the world! The 15,000 square meters of living space are the equivalent of 4 Gothic cathedrals. At the end of the visit, climb up to the terraces of the Palais des Papes. They offer a superb view over the main courtyard of the palace but also over the city of Avignon and the Rhône!

Continue your visit on the Saint-Bénezet bridge, otherwise known as the Pont d'Avignon, built-in the 12th century it initially boasted 22 arches but is now down to 4, having been frequently damaged by wars and floods over the centuries. A seemingly never-ending renovation period ensued until the 17th century. The audio-guide will allow you to learn much more about this legendary monument's fascinating history!
