Another day, another tip to visit a garden, this time in Avignon. Past the Palais des Papes visitors should go up the incline to the right of the Petit Palais Museum and follow the path/road around until there’s green space all around. This is Le Jardin du Rocher des Doms and the views over the Rhone Valley and Avignon are splendid. Visitors can also see the broken bridge – St Benezet Bridge – which inspired the children’s rhyme. The Ramparts are clearly visible and these can be visited, though entrance to the bridge is not possible due to a locked gate.
