Pont d’Avignon also known as Pont Saint-Bénézet is a famous medieval bridge built in the late-12th century linking France with Papal Territory positioned across the Rhône River. Today, only the Philippe le Bel tower and four of the 22 arches remain, due to severe flooding in the 17th century which destroyed most of the arches.
Admire Pont d’Avignon from the Sun Deck of your Emerald Liberté Star-Ship or walk over the bridge and learn about the fascinating history. You might even hear the famous song, “Sur le pont d’Avignon, On y danse, on y danse. Sur le pont d’Avignon, On y danse tout en rond.”
