VIDEO: A day in Avignon, France

In Adventure, Alaska Travelgram, Videos by scott

This is the first of several videos we’ll post from France. I had wanted to visit Avignon for some time. First, I was interested in the wonderful food and wine in the areas in and around Provence. Also, I was intrigued that Avignon once was a “Papal State” after being purchased from France. During the 14th century, the Pope left Rome and set up shop in Avignon. A palace was built by two successive popes on point overlooking Avignon and the Rhone River. Fascinating.
