... rental about 3:00 for a light snack after three hours of touring. We then walked the grounds and hillside forest area next to the property which provided a great view of the surrounding areas.

We walked around Avignon again in the early evening to get a good view of the surrounding area. At the top of the hill there was a sign that pointed out landmarks in the distance. Chateauneuf-de-Pape is only 12km away...sounds like an easy bike ride. Not.
... French bread.
For those of you who read about yesterday's steak meal you will understand why we were excited to cook a real piece of meat ourselves. This was the first steak we've had since leaving NZ!
Another bright sunny day and we set off on foot to check out the Popes Palace, where they resided in the 1300's before returning to Rome.
We did an audio tour through the palace which is huge and has great ...
