Private Guided Tour of Avignon : History

In 1309 the city, still part of the Kingdom of Arles, was chosen by Pope Clement V as his residence, and from 9 March 1309 until 13 January 1377 was the seat of the Papacy instead of Rome. This caused a schism in the Catholic Church.

Avignon is one of the few French cities to have preserved its ramparts and its historic center. One must also visit its papal palace, the Rocher des Doms hill and the famous Avignon’s bridge.

Avignon is classified World Heritage by UNESCO.
