The walled city of Avignon is one of France's most historical places, having been inhabited for over 10,000 years going back to Neolithic times. Even the more recent history of the city stretches back to the Middle Ages. In among all the splendid old architecture, though, is a bustling modern city packed with culture, nightlife, and a palate-pleasing culinary scene. Flights to Avignon will take you to Avignon-Caumont Airport (AVN), just seven miles from the historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
After you fly to Avignon, you'll need some rest, and cheap hotels near the airport will give you easy access to your accommodation and to the city center. That is where you'll find the most famous attractions, including the Palais des Papes (Palace of the Popes), the Avignon Cathedral, and the ruined bridge, the Pont d'Avignon. The area is easy to explore on foot, and most hotels in Avignon will be able to help you organize a guide if you want a more in-depth tour. You can get into town by hailing a private taxi in front of the terminal building, or by public bus number 22. Be aware, though, that the bus only stops at the airport on request, so you'll need to organize this in advance. Another option is to rent a car from one of the companies in the terminal building. Having your own wheels will allow you to explore the rest of the Provence region, which has lots of other historic towns and villages, beautiful scenery, and great vineyards where you can pick up a bottle of red for later.
