Cheap parking in Avignon: park on the street for free

Free places within the city walls in Avignon are extremely rare and widely acclaimed by the locals. In order to find a cheap and even free parking, you will have to move away from the centre.

However, the Avignon City Hall has planned it! If you have at least the day ahead of you, opt for the car parks. Located in Piot and Les Italiens, they have a total of 2,500 free spaces. The ideal way to park in Avignon, without paying anything.


All you have to do is take the shuttle bus, also free of charge, which takes you to the city centre. These run every five to ten minutes on average. They transport you from 7am to 00am maximum, depending on the day, from the Italians. And from 7 am to 8.30 pm maximum from the Piot.
