On the Avignon

Avignon, is a city famous for its theatre festival, for its palace of the Popes, but also for its bridge. Is it accessible to wheelchair users? The answer is: in part, as our report shows. We recommend that persons with motor disabilities be accompanied by a third person to visit this bridge.

Communities had to make compromises to make this bridge partially accessible to people with motor disabilities. During the report in June 2019, we nevertheless encountered difficulties to ride on the historical cobblestones of the monument (this is why we strongly advise to be accompanied, especially if it is a manual wheelchair)and in the use of the lift to descend.As you can see from the video, it takes a certain agility and perfect wheelchair control to maneuver and call the elevator at the same time.
