What can I say ? It's big, really big, and it dominates the city. From the huge place in front of it, you are really overwhelmed by the waiting palace. Once you get in, you get a headphone which leads you through the palace for more than two hours. The complete history of this building is explained in every detail. You visit all important rooms to end on top of the roof where you have an astounding view of Avignon and the wide surroundings. The interior is very limited, but it gives a great impression of the grandeur of the popes in the period they lived there.
