Beautiful views of the city and surrounding area from the top. You can see the bridge and the Pope Palace and Villenueve across the river. This was one of my favorite parts of visiting Avignon. It's a great place for kids too because there are lots of playgrounds.
These gardens offer magnificent panoramic views of the Rhone, the city roof tops, the Pont d'Avignon, and the medieval town of Villeneuve across the river. There are statues, a lake with ducks, a grotto with fish, pedal ponies for the kids, and a cafe. There are a few flower beds, and in summer the sound of the cicadas in the trees. This hilltop was the site of the original prehistoric settlement, 2000BC.
