Pont d'Avignon, Avignon

3.6
Pont d'Avignon was built in the late 12th century, and was originally 900 m (2,950 ft) long, with arches larger than any other Roman bridge of that era. Although the bridge has been rebuilt many times, it has gradually lost arches since the first time it was damaged in a siege, in 1226. Today, only four of the original 22 arches remain.

  • A visit to the Avignon Bridge is paid for. What a disappointment, we would have had 20 to four. We went to the toilet (clean and grztuites) and turned our heels. A picture of the riverside was enough for us. shame.

  • Ok it's half a bridge! Historical in a way but only because of the song. Definitely wouldn't pay to walk on it. Good view from the little free ferry that crosses the river.  more »

  • We were charged 4 Euros to see the bridge on student discount. The normal rate is 5 Euros per person. It's the remains of the bridge that was built many centuries ago by a shepherd with help from the locals. They give you a device after you pay that tells you the history of different objects and places that are on the bridge. It's worth seeing but I don't see why charge 5 Euros for it. It should be free.
  • Beautiful place during the day. Around this object there are great views and good routes for jogging and walking... Form my personal opinion, have eyes wide open after sunset. Definitely must see in Avignion. Just few minutes walk from there there famous fortifications in Avignon and Pope's Palace.
