Hidden corridors of the Palais secret in Avignon
A behind-the-scenes tour of Avignon’s sacred 14th-century Palais des Papes reveals the secret passageways, private rooms, baths, and wardrobes of the nine sovereign pontiffs that resided there.
Magnificent frescoes depict the role of wine in the Rhone Valley at that time.
The tour ends with a brunch on the Great Dignitaries’ terrace with Côtes du Rhône wines like Vacqueyras and Gigondas. It would be sinful for your wine enjoyment to end there—dozens of vineyards nearby are open for tastings. But first, wander the streets of the Côtes du Rhône capital, charming Avignon.
