Provence Day 6: Avignon and Orange
We started from Avignon castle and here another confession - my expectations twoards it were much higher than what I saw. Perhaps once it was a splendid place but now only walls are left. On top of that, Wojtek started to feel a bit bored but our programme and he showed his discontent in a pretty obvious way, so we really had to rush through the castle. To sum up, the castle wasn't the highlight for me. But I did enjoy the walk around the city. Avignon is pretty big and there are quite many places to look around. We wandered without any destination and made a longish loop that gave us a gist of how people live in this city.
From Avignon we headed north to our home, however we stopped in a little town called Orange. It's widely known for its amphitheater and I have to admit - it was spectacular. A place worth doing a detour.
And so our journey has finished. Next holidays: skiing somewhere in Tatra mountains.
