Avignon Rose Festival

Rose-growers from France and abroad showcase their newest roses at AlteraRosa in the Benoit XII cloister, a lovely courtyard at the Pope’s Palace in Avignon from May 29th to June 1st 2014.

Other activities at this exhibition include floral art workshops, seminars on caring for and breeding roses as well as modern uses for the rose fragrance. Arrive in Avignon early any morning (except Monday) to stroll through the outdoor market, then head over to the Pope’s Palace for the roses, giving yourself enough time to enjoy lunch in town afterward.
