“Vital Centre”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

In the very centre of Avignon, at the top of rue de Republique and below the Palais des Papes, this is the heart-beat of the city. There are dozens of cafes here with shaded terraces, offerring welcome respite after shopping on the Rue or sightseeing uptown. Great place for drinks and people-watching, but dining is better in the smaller surrounding streets. Don't worry, they all have the same menus and prices, so find one that appeals and just relax a while!

“Great atmosphere!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Lots of restaurants to suit any taste. Beat place to eat and people watch. Look out for the theatre with its grand facade.

“Nice and very croudy.”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

A very nice site with a lot of people and a lot of things to see and a lot of restaurants to sit and rest. Very nice site with several cultural and historic sites and there is no way you can have less than 3 hours or more for a short walk for detailed site seeing more time to be planned.

“I could spend a whole day here”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

The heart of Avignon, this central square is great for strolling around or enjoying a cold drink while watching locals and tourists. A relaxing place where I could spend a whole day... Elegant buildings, lively atmosphere, lot of shops and restaurants and everything is just minutes away.
