In Avignon, people dance there, as the song says so well. Few cities in France have such a rich historical heritage. Inside the ramparts, strolling through the streets of the city of the popes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, takes you back in time. For culture lovers, the name Avignon immediately evokes the Theater Festival, the courtyards of the Palais des Papes and the artistic bustle that reigns in summer. Music and opera are present all season long thanks to the programming provided by the Opéra Grand Avignon. In 2021, the institution returns to its emblematic hall after a few years of work.
A festive air accompanies us to rediscover the room finally returned to its spectators. Die Fledermaus, the famous Bat by Johann Strauss is sung in German as it should be, but to make the dialogues more spicy, they will be in French. A moment of pure delight in perspective ... Another highlight, a dinner awaits you at La Mirande to taste the cuisine of the starred chef, Florent Pietravalle.
The stay is also embellished with a beautiful visit which will be the occasion of an outing on a theme of your choice, "Avignon head in the air and wine" or "The flavors of my Provence" or "Avignon world capital of theater ".
