Caderousse / Avignon
Caderousse
Avignon
Leave the village of Caderousse using a provisional stretch of the ViaRhôna route leading to the famed vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The way takes you along steep vine-covered slopes with beautiful views down on the Rhône Valley. However, reaching the 3.5km stretch of retail parks and industrial zones in the parishes of Sorgues and Le Pontet, take care until you reach the canal-side greenway leading into Avignon. Enjoy impressive first views of France’s historic papal city as you approach it.
