We started the day around 8 AM. Luckily, we were able to leave our bags at our hotel/hostel and take some time to explore the city.
We started out at a traditional french restaurant
We thought it would be best to first walk through the Antigone on the east sid of the old city. Then decided it would be best to loop to the North around the old city, then cut back through the center, we set out on our journey. First, our walking took us to a large.
After walking through the Antigone portion, our semi-circle ring took us around the outskirts of the old city. We walked through a long park and picked up some fuel for out bodies. Dilyara got an egg and cheese sandwhich and I got a yoghurt drink. We then reached the end of our semi-circle walk and approached Porte de Peyrou. Opposite of this arch lays a garden, with an old aqueduct structure branching off of it. We examined these structures, then progressed into the old city.
We then walked straight through the middle of the downtown area. This allowed us to see a lot of the pretty buildings in the city and the quaint streets. We then grabbed some water and headed back to the hotel, in order to make the train around 1 PM to Avignon.
First of Three Cities today...
