See medieval Pope's Palace and Pont d'Avignon while exploring the old town, shop for local produce at an indoor market, and taste wine at the famous Chateauneuf du Pape vineyard. Walk through the alleys of the old town of Avignon and hear about the city’s history from your guide. Visit the Palais des Papes, or Pope’s Palace, one of the largest gothic buildings in France. The UNESCO World Heritage Site was once home to popes during medieval times.
