No metal when I was there but an amazingly beautiful city with a clear blue lake. Like in a fairy tale.

The historical center is amazingly beautiful. Sadly, there's lots of tourist traps and "chances pour la France" ready to take your money.

I confirm : no Metal there nowadays.

This expression comes from French politician Bernard Stasi in his 1984 book 'Immigration, a chance for France".

The expression is used mostly with sarcasm these days :



A chance, indeed : Laughing

The description you made of Avignon is quite scary for someone who never travelled to France, honestly, especially that picture Razz

I know it's sarcastic but, it's not the Bronx, i mean it's not worse than some other citys... i'd even say it's quite peaceful. You'll certainly not have any problem, even for a tourist.

Not much to see about metal however in this area, just enjoy the trip.

Of course it's sarcastic! Wink

Anyway, as in every highly touristic place, one has to stay alert to problems. Towns like Avignon or Nîmes or even Montpellier aren't less dangerous than Lyon or Paris, especially at night.

Lots of Arabs and Blacks in Avignon? Are you sure? I think you guys should to the Northen suburbs of Paris to, really, A LOT of Arabs and Blacks.
Besides the town is now ruled by the Nationalist party so no you wont be attacked by Muslim thugs
Lovely historical town, nice typical "Provence" surroundings.
