Avignon France Tourist Information and Vacation Guide
The Rhone River is one of the two most important rivers in Europe.
The river flows from Lake Geneva in Switzerland west to Lyon. It then flows south through Avignon France to the Mediterranean Sea.
Due to the fact that the Rhone is the only large river flowing 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).
