Avignon
Jena Hovor

Jena Hovor

As a travel expert who specializes in France, I am constantly amazed by the beauty, culture, and diversity of this incredible country. From the vibrant city of Paris to the stunning beaches of the French Riviera, there is something for everyone in France.

Avignon, which is located in the south of France and clings to a bend in the Rhône River, has the appearance and atmosphere of a medieval fairy tale. Avignon has a lot to offer beyond history, despite being mostly known for its 14th-century splendor as a papal capital and its even earlier 12th-century bridge. This walled Provençal town is now a lively destination with a variety of hide-and-seek squares perfect for postcard-writing and people-watching, amusing boutiques, and atmospheric cafés.
