This was an amazing tour. You got an interactive iPad to go through with it was so cool. The history is amazing and it was really well done. We thoroughly enjoyed it

Good value for money. Enjoyed using the Histopad for added bits of information and history ... also good to be able to move around at your own pace. Great views from the top terrace

The visit is worth the 12 euro per person ticket price. I highly recommend that you take the "Histo-Pad" that is INCLUDED in your ticket price. It might seem strange, but it definitely adds a lot to the experience. In addition to the visuals, there is a lot of extra information about the Palais that you will not get to see without using the Histo-Pad.

Buy your tickets in advance and go early to avoid crowds. Allow at least 2 hours to visit.

We had visited the Palais des Papes on or first visit here close to 20 years ago. The new iPod guided tour tablets are a new addition and made seeing the buildings much more interesting and informative. A must to visit in Avignon.

The palace is stunning. What a tremendous reconstruction. And, the audio guide is really well done. Concise, informative descriptions of the rooms in period.
