Avignon France Tourist Information and Vacation Guide
The Rhone River is one of the two most important rivers in Europe. It flows from Lake Geneva in Switzerland west to Lyon and then south through Avignon France to the Mediterranean Sea. Being the only large river to flow into the Mediterranean Sea, it had enormous economic, military and social significance.
Among the many bridges that crossed the Rhone River was the world-famous Avignon Bridge (Pont d'Avignon).
