Richly cultural Avignon, ancient home to Popes and kings, is a mere 50 miles or so from the delights of the French Mediterranean coast, but feels a world away. Eminently explorable on foot, it's the perfect place to immerse yourself in history, and even go sur le pont (which part-crosses the beautiful river Rhone), just for the sake of it.
