Weather in Avignon

Best time to visit

Early summer is usually ideal, with clear skies and warm days lightly tempered by a pleasant breeze. Avoid July, though, unless you are attending the Avignon Festival, as the town is crowded and prices at their peak. Temperatures rise in August, sometimes uncomfortably. The weather becomes briefly turbulent in autumn, with some dramatic storms. Winter’s frequent fine days are often marred by a strong, cold north wind called the mistral.
