The best things about Avignon are not in Avignon! Take the hourly 205 bus to the unbelievable Pont du Gard aqueduct, and watch the daredevil French kids diving headlong off the upstream cliffs, as they have done for 2000 years.
Catch the next bus on to Uzès, a magical little town on the edge of the Provençal wilderness. I had a college friend who stayed in a hillside hamlet beyond Uzès and cycled, when he could be bothered, to University in Avignon. One night we found him asleep on a park bench nursing an empty wine bottle. Only in Provence!
