"Sur le pont d'Avignon, on y danse...." Surely you remember this little song? The 'Pont d'Avignon' is officially named Pont Benezet and is the only bridge not to reach the opposite side of the river. In the 14th century Avignon was the pope's residence for almost 70 years. The pope's palace is still the most important building in the city. Just a short distance from Avignon there are many other interesting places to visit. The 'princes town' of Orange is only 22km to the north, the Roman aqueduct Pont du Gard is less than 30km away and Nimes, with its large ampitheatre, is 50km away.
