How far are these places from Avignon?

by vwinn001

I was hoping to find out how far these cities are from Avignon and the best way to get there. We are traveling early from Paris to Avignon and want to add another stop from one of these choices, so input on which you think is the best would be great as well.

Arles
The Camargue
Orange

Thanks so much for the quick replies. I guess more info would be helpful. We will be staying in Paris and are taking a day trip to Avignon. We don't want to see just Avignon while we are there for the day and want to spend a half day doing something else from those choices. We will be using public transportation though. Do either of you know long the commute on public transportation is to these places and is it available? I am putting together an rough itinerary to make sure we aren't too rushed but get a chance to see as much as we can.

Thanks so much. I always tend to try and squeeze in too much and that was one of the reasons I wanted to check the distance and transportation times to see if I was being reasonable! I have posted another question with some other day trips we are thinking about and some more info about how long we will be in Paris etc. Thanks so much for your help.

Travel Tips for Avignon

Palais des Papes (Papal...

by chrissyalex

Palais des Papes (Papal Palace) In 1309, Pope Clement V moved the Papal court to Avignon due to a factional strife in Rome. It remained here until 1376.
Seven official popes reigned in Avignon during that time period.

Pack for Warm Weather

by roamer61

As Avignon is located in Provence, the climate can be quite warm, typically Mediterranean. Cool clothing as well as comfortable clothing with good shoes for lots of walking is highly recommended.

by BEETLE_VERTE

We went to a few, but don't remember any of their names... those little terraces on the central place (with the caroussel) will serve the best kir (wine coktail) in a perfect surrounding. Take a look at the Palais des Papes peaking between the walls...

Fortification

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The papal palace has been surrounded by 4 kilometer fortification with 12-th towers. It was the most strengthened place in France at that time.

However these walls so never also have not played military value and have gradually been disassembled and destroyed. Their some sites for attraction of tourists are now restored.

Pont d'Avignon

by rexvaughan

Evidently I am one of the few people on earth who did not sing about this bridge as a child but it seems to have been known around the world. Maybe we were just backward in Oklahoma in the 1940s. It spans the Rhone River between the old town of Avignon and Villeneuve-les-Avignon on the left bank. Only four of the initial 22 arches remain. It was initially built between 1171 and 1185, with an original length of some 900 m (2950 ft), but it suffered frequent collapses during floods and had to be reconstructed several times. Several arches were already missing (and spanned by wooden sections) before the remainder was damaged beyond repair in 1660.

The bridge's construction was inspired by Saint Benezet, a local shepherd. The legend says that Jesus Christ appeared to him and told him to build the bridge. He went to the bishop and was ridiculed but proved his story by lifting a huge stone that 30 men could not lift and placing it as the foundation for the first arch. Then the local moneyed leaders backed the project After his death, he was interred on the bridge itself, in a small chapel standing on one of the bridge's surviving piers on the Avignon side.
The chapel was also was home to the bargemen for worship until it became unsafe and a new chapel was built at the entrance to the bridge in the 18th Century.
