Avignon is situated on the regional border of Provence and Languedoc, within easy reach of nimes, Arles and marseille. Its old streets house many antic dealers, art galleries, tea-rooms and restaurants.

The "Papalines", a delicacy made of fine chocolate, sugar and oregano liqueur, is a speciality of the city. Avignon is also the Capital of the famous Cotes du Rhône wine.

The “Festival d’Avignon” is one of the oldest and most famous theatre festivals in the world.

The “Festival d’Avignon” presents contemporary art during three weeks in July with over 40 performances in twenty different venues ranging from chapels to the legendary Honour Courtyard at the Palace of the Popes which seats over 2000 spectators.

Avignon is a strategic site in the Rhone valley and owes its origine to the Doms rock (Rocher des Doms), a great hunk of rock rising up from the left bank of the river Rhone. It is likely that the Celts used the rock for a defensive position sometime Before Christ.

The major attraction in Avignon is the Palace of the Popes, the massive building was built during the 14th century during the period the city became a second Rome (moved to Avignon from Rome) due to unrest and turmoil at the time. It was enriched by art during the 17th and 18th Centuries, and it remained papal property up to the French revolution.
