We had a member of our group who injured his knee and could not walk much, so we took the petit train. It was a good way to see a lot of the old town in a short time. Then we walked back to the TI where we parked our car.

We were in Avignon in May. There were (when we were there) two trains an hour & the trip lasts around 45 mins.
They give you headphones to listen to the guided tour - there were plenty of languages.
The train starts and ends right outside the Popes Palace.
It takes you up the side into the gardens then around the old town.
This is fun for children and adults.

The Petite train was a very helpful guide after our arrival in Avignon. A pleasant ride that gave us an overview of the entire town with views of all important sights. Inexpensive.

Used this train to see around Avignon the cost for two was 18 euros, the information being provided via headphones was behind the point where the train actually was situated at the time.

However a quick trip to see around the town and to see where things are will help, try and pick a quiet time the train is uncomfortable with 4 adults in each seating area

The train visited everywhere interesting in the old town. Just being on the train was an experience as it made its way around the very narrow streets. The commentary was excellent. It is best to make notes of where you wish to return to take photos as the streets are so narrow I at least found it hard to get a decent photo from the train.
