    Hi Santi. I have just booked a trip to Avignon for next April, and am looking for ideas of what to do and see. My last visit to Avignon was in . . . 1963.

    Another good page bringing back memories. I would put such a link youtube.com/watch?v=ya8EZ509... on your Local Customs: The song "Sur le pont d'Avignon".

    Yes, I thought it was just called Pont d'Avignon, didn't know the official name was Pont Saint-Bénezet.
