Pont d'Avignon was built in the late 12th century, and was originally 900 m (2,950 ft) long, with arches larger than any other Roman bridge of that era. Although the bridge has been rebuilt many times, it has gradually lost arches since the first time it was damaged in a siege, in 1226. Today, only four of the original 22 arches remain.

  • An interesting visit - liked the guide. Although only when we went to the tower in Villeneuve that we understood some of the greater context and history.

  • we visited to see the origin of the song that we learnt way back when we were little. Beautiful view, nice interruption from museum indoor exploration.

  • We stopped by this bridge as part of a combo ticket that also included the palace of popes and the garden of the palace of popes. The views were nice and they had video exhibits explaining the history of the bridge and how it has been destroyed over time. One of the more Roman inspired aspects of the city.
  • A world-famous monument, a trip to Avignon would certainly not be complete without a visit to it. The bridge itself and the views from it are definitely worth a visit, it's an amazing place. We visited during the summer season on a weekday and it wasn't terribly crowded. The entrance fee is very reasonable.
