Britta: Avignon

July 22, 2010

The IEFE institute took us to Avignon recently. Serendipitously we went during Avignon’s annual theater festival which is from July 7th to July 31st. They have over 500,000 visitors and is becoming more and more internationally known. We saw the famous Pont d’Avignon and made sure to dance while singing the song Sur le pont d’Avignon

We visited the Palais des Papes, also a well known destination in the Provence region, as it was was was the home of several popes during the 14th and 15th century when there was political unrest in Italy.

And we made sure to walk around the town and catch some theater in the air. Every street and alleyway is covered in posters advertising different shows from musicals, one acts, to dance and cinema. And people are in costume ready to entice you to come see their performance
