Set off for the South of France and the beautiful, historic city of Avignon. Spend your nights in delightful Avignon hotels and your days exploring medieval monuments, or sightseeing from a river boat on the Rhone. Take a walk through the Old Town and see Avignon's 14th-century ramparts, as well as a 12th-century cathedral that houses the elaborately carved mausoleum of Pope John XXII. Also be sure to tour the immense Palais des Papes, the seat of the papacy during the 14th century. It's one of the largest medieval Gothic buildings in Europe, and the most-visited attraction in Avignon. Rent a car in Avignon and add to your itinerary some of the numerous nearby towns with rich histories rivaling Avignon's, picturesque rural villages, and a superb national park in the mountains.
Avignon car rentals make it easy to get to the center of Avignon from Avignon Airport, approximately six miles away. When you've taken in the sights of the city, head a little further afield to Nimes to see that city's Roman monuments, including a well-preserved amphitheater and a temple. See another superb example of ancient Roman architecture approximately 30 minutes from Avignon: the Pont du Gard. This three-tiered, arched monument is the highest of all Roman aqueducts in the world and is even a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Drive into the mountains and enjoy the natural beauty of Cevennes National Park. Here you can ride a funicular railway 330 feet underground into the Aven Armand cave. The centerpiece is the largest stalagmite ever discovered, among some 400 other remarkable examples.
