Exploring Avignon the City of the Popes
Contributor blog post by Caroline Longstaffe:
The magnificent city of Avignon only about 70km from Lourmarin.
Spend a day here and discover its rich and fascinating history.
Explore the ramparts of its incredibly well preserved city wall,
built in 1403, which like a ribbon round a cake, still circles the town today.
Home to the Popes for one hundred years, visit where they lived,
Le Palais des Papes.
