“Really not worth the time”

Petit Train Avignon
Ranked #9 of 97 things to do in Avignon
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 March 2014

The train was very bumpy and the route was partly very badly chosen. The worst was the recorded guide that was at times in the wrong place and mostly babbled out too much information in a short time. Maybe ok if you want to take your under 5 for a ride.

What a hoot.
This little train gives a nice city tour at a reasonable price.
When I enjoyed Avignon, the train left every 15 minutes or so.

Found this little train by chance whilst sitting in a square, and it was excellent value at Euro7 per person. We had English commentary whilst we wound around the narrow cobble-stone streets, which seemed hardly wide enough to take the little bendy train. It was a most interesting ride and most enjoyable.

Bit bumpy on the cobbled, narrow streets, but the driver was obviously well used to the route! Lots to see, 40 minutes well spent.

I left Chicago arrived in Avignon 15 hours later. I heard about the train in guide books and it sounded like a great way to get a layout of the city.

The train leaves near the main entrance to the Palace of the Popes.

Maybe it was the long day and full sun that made this ride unenjoyable.

The train was uncomfortable, at least to me. I could feel every bump. They call it Petit not only because of the size of the train but for the seating as well. The audio clarity was OK. The information was not presented very well. Maybe it was a case of "lost in translation".

The ride did provide an overview of the sites and some of the back streets.

You put on the headset and set the switch to the language you want to hear.

If I had to do it again, I'd skip the train and follow a guide book.

If you have a family, this train ride can get on the expensive side.
