Two must-see places in Avignon with this combined ticket including entrances to the Pope's Palace and Saint Benezet Bridge !
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, plunge directly into the Middle Ages and relive the daily life of the first popes of Avignon.
Continue your visit on the Pont d'Avignon whose real name is the Saint Bénezet bridge. Built-in the 12th century, it was composed of 22 arches but having been frequently damaged by wars and floods over the centuries, the eternal renovation work was stopped as early as the 17th century...
