Nimes to Avignon

by jackiepetts

What is the best/quickest mode of public transportation from Nimes to Avignon?

Thanks.

Re: Nimes to Avignon

by serenagrimaldi

The best and quickest way is by train, long distance busses don't seem to exist in France. look on sncf.com for times and fares. The union flag icon,for english language, is right at the bottom of the page

or use this direct English link to the French train system:

It's only 44 km from Nime to Avignon. There must be a bus, perhaps checking the Nimes, Marseilles or Avignon web sites would give you a bus link.

Train would probably be quicker though.

The song "Sur le pont d'Avignon"

by Redang

Maybe you have heard about this song. Would you like to sing it?

Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les beaux messieurs font comm' ça
Et puis encore comm' ça

Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les bell' dames font comm' ça
Et puis encore comm' ça

Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les jardiniers font comm' ça
Et puis encore comm' ça

Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les couturiers font comm' ça
Et puis encore comm' ça

Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les vignerons font comm' ça
Et puis encore comm' ça

Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les blanchisseus's font comm' ça
Et puis encore comm' ça

The song was originally composed by Pierre Certonthe in the16th century.

Go exploring

by rexvaughan

This old section of the wall caught for me the stark contrast of past and present. There are autos, lamp posts and a plethora of traffic signs, but what still stands out is the centuries old wall. I am not even sure in what part of the city we were, but sights like this are all around. As in any city, just take off and see what there is that might be of interest.

The 1/2 bridge

by akikonomu

When we visited France, I was a young and inexperienced traveller with little knowledge of what the world was about.

When I first saw the half bridge (without knowing the history), I found it strange that people would want to retain half a bridge or built only half a bridge. And I wondered what it was like to stand at the edge of that bridge.

Regardless, the view is good and at least it set my mind into "imaginary mode" - very much lacking of late.

PROVINCE: Pont Du Gard

by dewaele.j

On a beatiful day go and visit Pont Du Gard (try to combine it in a day trip with Orange). On a hot day, swimming or canoeing under the bridge can be vey refreshing. You´ll find it very difficult to abandon it later in the afternoon.

Saint Benezseth bridge

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

One more sight of Avignon is Saint Benezseth - bridge through Rhone which was repeatedly sung by poets. The legend says that it was constructed in 1177-1188 by shepherd Benedikt (in Provence Benezet) who came the city as he confirmed, with the divine task.

He built the bridge during 11 years, but died, not having finished construction. It was finished only in 1237 when it was stretched on 900 meters, and had 22 arches. However rough waters of the river constantly destroyed it, and it was necessary to spend regenerative works. Within 500 years there was this struggle against the river while in 1660 the bridge got such destructions that the decision not to restore it any more was accepted.

In the present view the bridge has 4 arches and comes to an end approximately at the middle of the river. Probably therefore it casts romantic ideas, both has been repeatedly sung by poets and embodied by artists. On the second support of the bridge there is Sacred Nikolay's church of XII century.
