Avignon Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


From 1309 to 1377, seven French popes succeeded one another in Avignon, much to Rome’s displeasure. The Supreme Pontiffs lived the good life in their palace and were envied by all. Today, the palace hosts the Festival d'Avignon's "In" events, while the "Off" takes place within the ramparts. The exceptional architectural wealth of Avignon was recognised in 1995 with the naming of the Palais des Papes and Pont Saint Bénézet as Unesco World Heritage sites.
