Avignon’s Bridge to Nowhere

Avignon may be well known as the “City of Popes” for its participation in the 14th century Papal uprising, but the peculiar landmark Pont d’Avignon—or the bridge to nowhere—is what truly inspires the mind to travel back into the depths of regional French history. Originally meant to span the width of the Rhône, efforts to rebuild the bridge to its 22 arches halted long ago, leaving 4 hauntingly beautiful monuments to the past. Wander in wonder through Provençal landscapes and add this UNESCO World Heritage Site to your European travel milestones.
