The Park Rocher des Doms is just above the Cathedral to the south or a walk up from 'the bridge' (Pont St Benezet) to the north. It is a pleasant place for a stroll with plenty of benches and places to find shade when the...More

So glad we did this. Yes, it was v hot; yes, there were quite a few steps to climb (from the Pont St Bénézet side). The park, however, has wonderful vistas, many paths to stroll, a lovely pond & fountain by a cafe & a...More

It was surface-of-the-sun hot when we visited so being here and having the occasional breeze was most sincerely appreciated. This is a great place to relax and take a few pictures.

We found this park by accident, climbing up from the bottom of the bridge. It’s a long walk up but well worth it as the views over the river are fab. We didn’t stay long as it was so hot but there were lots of...More

There are beautiful views of the river and the city from several different points in this park. There's also a cafe in the shade by the duck pond if you're looking for a place to get out of the sun.

Well-maintained gardens and just part of the visit here, with fabulous views of the Rhone valley and the city. Excellent sport for photographers.

I loved visiting Rocher des Doms... it was a very hot day and it was wonderful to rest a while in the shade of the trees next to the pond. A quaint tea shop there as well, although I did not order anything. There are...More

A short walk up from the papal palace, this peaceful garden offers a magnificent view of the river and the surrounding countryside. Well worth the walk. If you like, you can walk all the way down to the river from here.
