Avignon effortlessly combines spectacular historic architecture with a vibrant café culture deriving from its large student population. Encircled by 800-year old stone walls, Avignon is famous for its impressive medieval fortress, the Palais des Papes, which dates back to the era when the city was an important religious centre. Visitors to Avignon in July will also be able to enjoy a well-regarded performing arts festival.
