I have travelled quite a lot in my 20's, did many different jobs and went back to university in my 30's. Now I'm an independent confirmed tour guide who loves to share his love for Avignon, from highlights to short stories off the beaten track. Follow me and have a taste of one true Provençal wonder !

Tour description

We are going to spend together two hours inside the Medieval fortifications. Perfect timing for you to have a local taste of Avignon, with of course the Papal Palace and the worldwide famous Pont d'Avignon. But not only that...
Indeed, on our way from a must see to another, I will show you hidden details that even locals don't know about.
The guided tour might end up at the highest lookout in town. No big deal but get your legs and comfortable shoes ready.
Looking forward to meet you all!

Min/Max number of participants : 2/20

    I will be waiting right in front of the city hall, place de l'Horloge. You can recognize me with my deep navy blue top.

Interesting tour with plenty of information to help us know more about Avignon and its history. Small group was a bonus. Marc was clear and fluent in English. We recommend this tour.

Really excellent walking tour with Marc this afternoon. He was knowledgeable and personable and really brought the history of the city alive. He interacted well with the group and definitely introduced us the parts of the city of Avignon that we would have missed without his insight. Thank you

Loved the tour. It was a small group and he answered MANY questions for us from about the history of Avignon and France. He pointed out unique features of the city and surrounding country side. Marc was very considerate of everyone's needs. He waited for people who needed more time to navigate stairs and hilly areas.
