Avignon was not supposed to be in our trip, because it was said that the transportation from Marseille to Avignon was inconvenient, especially if we brought two kids with us. However, my wife would like to see if any lavender field was still worth a visit, and one of my previous posts got a kind comment by @amvanaken that I should go to Avignon. As our calendar was still blank for the eighth day of the holiday, we decided to pay a one-day visit to Avignon. Inconvenient transpiration? We rent a car and drove ourselves.

阿维尼翁本不在我们的行程里。据说,从马赛去阿维尼翁的交通不大方便,尤其是我们还带着两个孩子。然而,我媳妇依然想看看有没有薰衣草田值得一看,而我前面一篇帖子得到 @amvanaken 的留言说阿维尼翁值得一去。此次度假的第八天,反正原本也没什么计划,我们就去看看吧。交通不便?没关系,我们租了台车,自驾游。

Day 8. Avignon 阿维尼翁

It took us much more time than expected to get to Avignon: the car rental service spent some time to prepare a child seat for us, the kids asked for a pause on the way, and we took the wrong exit of the highway. When we arrived, we went to the tourist office immediately. We were told that all lavender fields were truly gone and we should have come in July. It sounded disappointing until we saw the city. The city walls, the Papal Palace, and the Pont Saint-Bénézet were very impressive. No regret to have come to Avignon!

自驾去阿维尼翁所花费的时间比预期要长:租车公司没有儿童座椅了,花了一些时间去别处借来;中途,孩子们要求休息,吃吃喝喝;下高速公路的时候,走错了出口。一到目的地,我们就立刻去游客中心询问薰衣草田的事。果然,我们来晚了,薰衣草田应该选在七月观赏。虽有少许失望,但亦在意料之中。不过,待我们游览完老城后,感觉不虚此行。不论是老城城墙,还是教皇宫,还有圣贝内泽桥,都给我们留下了深刻的印象。
