|in the morning we walked to the train station to catch a ride to avignon|
on the left bank of the rhone, avignon is a partially walled city that once replaced rome as the seat of the papacy for nearly 100 years. many of the ramparts are still standing and visitors and locals alike walk along the ancient causeways.
|the pont saint-benezet no longer spans the entirety of the rhone after partially collapsing due to flooding. though we decided not to spend the money, visitors can still walk on the remaining portion for a fee of around 10 euros|
