Our apartment, 74 Rue Des Lices, is very comfortable and is in the middle of the antique walled city.
Avignon is a completely walled city and the walls are still intact. It has 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom and of course the balcony.
We walked to the tourist information centre, and as we still had 45mins to wait we had hot chocolate and coffee to pass the time.
Our mini bus (8 seater van) arrived a little early at 1.55pm. We worked our way out of the walled city and headed for Nimes, about 1 hrs drive. Nimes was an important settlement on the road between Rome and Spain. It now contains 2 of the best preserved pieces of Roman Architecture in the form of a Temple to Augustus and a Roman Amphitheater (Colosseum) which is almost 2000 years old and they are both completely intact.
After leaving Nimes we drove to Uzes, a very charming hillside town, which was the centre of a Duchey, whose family still live in the original chateau, with a beautiful courtyard
From here we drove to see the Pont du Gard, which is a famous ancient Roman aqueduct built to transport water to the city of Nimes. There was no mortar used in this construction, and over the entire length only falls by 2.5centimetres.
We then returned to Avignon, very tired and ready for a quiet night
