A ride around the ramparts of Avignon
Pedal through history
You’re wondering what to visit in Avignon? Head for the ramparts which encircle the town of Avignon, and dive into its past for a moment (or rather a ride). Among the best preserved in France, these ramparts were built in 14th century to show the town’s territory and protect the population. For a bike ride, just get on your bike for a family ride in total freedom, on the 4.3 km cycling itinerary which runs beside them. Most of the trip is green lane and the terrain is flat, so this is an easy ride even for children. Starting from the Porte de la République, the loop takes you round this monument which is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage in just 45 minutes. You can even take the river shuttle at the dock for La Barthelasse island.
