2013/06/23 France Day 06: From Cassis to Avignon
π 2013-06-23 01:01 in France2013, Trips

After getting up in Cassis, we had to drive out already (no time to spend a whole day to hike to a Calanque), so we drove to to a market on our way to Avignon, and went to see other things on the way.

We stopped at a nice little town to visit and see the local market: L'isle sur la Sorgue.










Next, we went to a Lavender Museum and other nice views:

And drove towards an Abbey which we unfortunately didn't have time to visit, and their lavender hadn't quite bloomed yet:



Next was to go see the Rousillon Ochre, quite nice:






And finally, we arrived in Avignon, a bit late, but not too late to see a few things before dinner. Le Palais des Papes is impressive. We went to see it the next day, so we went on the famous Pont D'avignon that evening:












And time for another nice dinner:


But we went back out quickly for some sunset pictures:






And finally time for bed :)
