Welcome to the City of Popes. Avignon lends itself perfectly to revelling in nostalgia. Stroll through the beautiful Old Town, part of which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. While you're there, take a proper look at the intact and imposing ramparts: they encircle the entire Old Town, with its Gothic Papal Palace and the glorious medieval houses. The Old Town is dominated by the Gothic Papal Palace, to which the town owes its nickname.
