Prior to visiting Avignon we had not read about this tower nor even heard of this suburb near Avignon called Villeneuve-les-Avignon. But, while exploring Avignon we noticed this tower and nearby fort across the river and so we inquired further ......which led us here.
We were able to drive to and park very close to the Tower of Philip the Fair and although it is rather sparse inside, it only costs 3 Euro to climb the spiral staircase within the tower to admire the amazing 360 degree views from here.....and in our opinion these views were definitely worthwhile.
You can see back towards Avignon, a fair distance along the Rhone river, and you are also overlooking the suburb of Villeneuve-les-Avignon and its fortress.
The hike up and down the spiral staircase is typical and somewhat challenging as it encompasses a fair number of steps - so be prepared.
