Avignon's 14th century ramparts.
And what an introduction to Medieval Avignon it was? The cab driver, instead of just slipping onto Boulevard Saint-Roch and then enter the city through Porte de la Republique and up the main street with the same name to our apartment close to the top of the street, decided to take us on a more scenic, but slower drive down Boulevard de l‘Ouille with the Rhone River on our left and the weathered ramparts of the ancient city on our right and entered the city at Porte de l’Ouille close to the famous Avignon bridge, half of bridge washed away by the Rhone River in a flood many years ago.
