Most Popular, But for Good Reason

Avignon is one of the most popular tourist attractions in France, but with good cause. Of course, there is the famous "broken bridge" which is truly a sight to behold, but there is also the Palace of the Popes -- home to a succession of Popes during the time period (14th century) when the Popes were being run out of Italy! There are wonderful walking streets, great places to stop and have drinks, dinners or picnics, sophisitcated shopping opporunities and even some nightclubs/wine bars to sample. This town has it all, including a wealth of great hotels from which to choose.
