    Avignon Weather for December 2021

    Due to the rich religious history of Avignon, France, with its Palais des Papes and Notre Dame des Doms, the city becomes especially busy during the festive period as visitors flock to partake in the many services. Coupled with the mild Mediterranean climate, the ancient city really comes to life at this time of year.

    December is chilly in Avignon, as it is throughout the neighbouring towns and cities, including Aix en Provence. Cool evening temperatures of just 2 degrees Celsius are common, while highs reach just 10 degrees on average. Moderate precipitation falls in keeping with the rest of the year; slightly less than autumn but more than the summer at around 53 mm.

    A good place to do some Christmas shopping, or indeed just pick up a few treats for yourself, is Les Halles; a market style shopping centre in the heart of the city selling everything from fresh flowers to pastries to meats and cheeses. There are often workshops and contests held here, such as chocolate making lessons and awards for the best pie. It's a great place to pick up some lunch in the city.

    If you're looking for a great New Years Eve party venue, look no further than Duplex. This club features a spacious dance floor, ample seating and a heated terrace, and offers themed nights that cater to all tastes, ranging from salsa to erotic. There's also Latino dancing and zumba lessons on Tropical Night!

    A wonderfully central hotel that won't break the bank is the Hotel le Splendid which offers rooms from £50 per night. With just 17 rooms, there's a friendly, cosy and intimate feel here. While all rooms come equipped with modern conveniences, those wanting a bit more can opt for a furnished apartment adjoining the hotel with kitchenettes and patios.
