Day 25 - Sunday 16th May - Cannes, Avignon, Lyon

Left Nice early. Stopped at Cannes where the Cannes Film Festival was on. Only saw Amy Winehouse while having coffee surrounded by want to be's "oh that's us!" Thank god we had our sunnies on!
Avignon was a treasure long ago - a city for the French popes. We found a lovely garden on top of the hill with a huge statue of Our Lad covered in gold. Here we ate lunch in gale force winds!
After walking the lanes of Avignon we headed off to Lyon - did that in 45 hours - oops 4 to 5 hours it just seemed 45 hours long! Huge traffic jams!
