I found this little train an unpleasant addition to the Avignon experience. I suppose if you are a traveler whose is unable to walk, this train might be necessary. Otherwise it seemed like a touch that did not add anything to the Avignon vibe.

If you are visiting Avignon taking the Petit Train is a must to view the town. You can then know where to visit later. The train takes you all through the narrow streets, up to the gardens and stops for a viewing of the Bridge....More

It’s worth looking at ‘Visite Avignon par Lieutaud’ as the Little Train info is all listed by the Tourist Board. Little Train very educational, takes you around the old town, you’ll see sites that you may not find on foot! Cost €9.00 per adult includes...More

We really wanted to get on this train. We'd see it and start running toward it but it would drive away. It was hard to find where to catch this train. We really wanted to do it.
