After visiting the largest Gothic complex in the world, the Palace of the Pope, head to the Avignon Cathedral, Place Pie and Le Pont Saint-Benezet. If you still got time to tour around, make sure to visit the Fort St-Andre, Carthusian Monastery and the Lapidaire Museum. Transportation: Avignon is quite small which makes it easy to wander around on foot. Most locals prefer riding a bicycle and you can share a bike via the “velopop” program. There are around 200 bicycles located at 17 stations all over the city. Make sure to purchase a smartcard to get access to these bikes.
