Avignon Gourmet Tours

Rose in Provence

For the 10th consecutive year, the « Palais des Papes » in Avignon celebrates the roses from 09/05 to 01/06.

Named Alterarosa, the rose exhibition takes place in one of the courtyards of the Gothic Palace for the most spectacular effects.

The lucky visitors who happen to be here on that long weekend (it’s bank holiday in France) have the opportunity to visit the Popes Palace in Avignon like never before. This year, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the festival, the Pink colour has been chosen. The courtyard of the Palace is then decorated with dozens of the different roses varieties, in all shades of Pink. They even went further by making a giant flower cake !

It’s a unique experience in Provence, where floral art meets history !

Avignon Gourmet Tour was invited to the opening, so we have two pictures of the event, to give you an idea of the beauty of it. Hope you enjoy them !
