Since 1947 and the creation of the Festival de théâtre d'Avignon by Jean Vilar, the city has become the largest theatre in the world every July. For 3 weeks, more than 1,500 shows are offered per day and the theatrical adventures are multiple and varied.
With this guided tour, follow in the footsteps of this long and incredible love story that links Avignon and the sixth art. This attachment is much older than it seems and the heritage and trompe l'oeil paintings (by Marion Pochy and Dominique Durand) spread throughout the city will prove it. They will make you relive the highlights of this beautiful theatrical romance.
