Rocher des Doms

The Rocher des Doms is a bouldered spur which that lies north of the Palais des Papes in Avignon. Climb to the top and enjoy the panoramic views of Provence from the lovely park on its summit.  The botanical park was a large undertaking when it wat built in 1830; it masks a reservoir that once supplied all of Avignon with water.

From the top, you can see the stunning views of the Rhône, including the well-known Pont St Bénézet, the isles of Barthelasse and Piot surrounded by the river, Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, and the Alpilles.  Come enjoy the panorama at Rocher des Doms and relax in the beautiful garden.

This incredible vantage point should not be missed.  The weather can be windy, so dress accordingly before heading to the Rocher des Doms garden above the Palais des Papes.

Absolutely Avignon gardens, history & cultural private guided tour

Absolutely Avignon gardens, history & cultural private guided tour

This is an exceptional guided day tour to visit both Villeneuve-lès-Avignon and Avignon the city of the Popes. It's only the river Rhône that separates them both, but history indisputably links them. Around 1000 AD Benedictine monks built St André Abbey on Mount Andaon. It's here that we begin our tour with a visit to the Abbey private gardens and Fort. The market town of Saint André became a fortress under the influence of the King Philippe Le Bel, who wanted to control access to the Rhône between Avignon and the Gard following annexation to the French crown. From here we take a walk down to visit La Chartreuse, a former monastery at the centre of the village. Exquisite frescoes connected to the Palais des Papes and an opportunity to explore the site before taking a break for lunch. Then return to Avignon via the Tour Philippe le Bel, once the entrance to the famous Pont d'Avignon. A walk on the bridge before a guided tour of the Palais des Papes, a most spectacular historic monument.
