Traverse the Authentic Avignon Bridge

Discover the UNESCO-Listed Pont Saint Benezet (also known as Pont D'Avignon) while on a tour in Avignon, France. Dating back to the 12th century, the medieval bridge reached the length of over 1100 meters (3608 ft) upon completion and featured 22 arches, however, only four of them can be seen today. The exceptional piece of architectural heritage was actually built in 8 years, making it a marvel of its time.

Legend has it that the Saint Benezet Bridge was built by a young shepherd named Benezet after he heard voices telling him to do so. Nowadays, the imposing landmark attracts over 300.000 visitors each year and is often sung about in a well-known nursery rhyme song 'Sur le Pont d’Avignon' in France.

Bear in mind that the tour is held outdoors, thus, comfortable footwear and clothing are advisable for the best sightseeing experience.
