As equally beautiful as it is cultural, Avignon is a thriving hub of history, architecture and arts. Described by many as the ‘perfect break’, the city offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy a mix of activities in an unforgettable medieval setting. The ancient town centre is built inside the city’s historic rampart walls. Avignon is one of the only French cities to have preserved these magnificent walls, and is the reason why the city landscape looks so unique. The city spans across the Rhône river bank, and is the largest city capital of the département of Vaucluse. Hiring a car in Avignon means you can travel the full distance of this incredible city, admiring its picturesque views and cultural heritage.
