Avignon (2nd ed.)
Walk & Eat
John Underwood and Pat Underwood

published 2015 4.5" x 6" • 144 pages • full-color
ISBN 9781856914536 • paperback • $14.99

This pocket-sized guide to walking in Provence is designed for short-break walking holidays around Avignon and the Roman cities of Nîmes and Arles using the excellent public transport services. Avignon is just 2h30min from Paris by TGV (6 hours direct from London in summer); it is also served by coach and budget airlines.

Even "non-walkers" will appreciate the large-scale city plans, descriptions of the sights, and restaurant recommendations. For each suggested restaurant there is a photograph of the décor and one of their dishes, sample menu, price guide, opening times, and a recipe for one of their specialities.

Other sections include: planning your trip, logistics on arrival (using public transport, tourist information, shopping), local markets and specialities, glossary of local food terms, and a restaurant mini-vocabulary. A special feature is the emphasis on natural local foods suitable for those with food intolerances. All recipes have been made by the authors and are known to "work."

Besides Avignon, the book covers Nîmes, Arles and many other highlights: St-Rémy, Les Baux, the Alpilles, Barbentane, Gordes and the Pont du Gard (a UNESCO World Heritage site)-all easily accessible by public transport.

10 walks and suggested excursions by train, bus and boat, large-scale plans of Avignon, Nîmes, Arles and St-Rémy; area map; 1:35,000 topo maps for the countryside walks. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.
