Experience Avignon like a local

In the centre of town you can find charming boutiques, cafes and artists’ galleries. As you enjoy a quick coffee in one of the popular meeting spots in Place de l’Horloge be sure to look up to find the statues gazing down on you from a corner balcony. Avignon is full of restaurants offering you the cheese and wine you crave and be sure to try the local delicacies, which include olive oil, tapenade and candied fruits. Just a short distance from Avignon is Luberon a beautiful area of countryside and typical Provence hilltop villages. This beautiful landscape famously inspired the paintings of Van Gogh and Cezanne.
