Avignon has a long, rich history which is visible all around the city. Part of the department of Vaucluse within the Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur region, it is known as the “City of Popes” owing to its former status as the capital of Christendom during the Middle Ages. Its roots can be traced back to Roman times and like many other cities, Avignon was claimed by many; including the Goths and the Franks. It eventually became part of France in the 1700s.

The city was chosen over Rome to be the residence of the pope, sparking major controversy for a number of years. Its monuments and artefacts survived both the plague and the French revolution, many of which have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
