Discovering the fascinating history of Avignon

Discovering the fascinating history of Avignon

Located in the heart of the small city of Vaucluse, a few steps from the Palais des Papes and the ramparts, the Hotel De Cambis is the ideal place to discover the tumultuous history of Avignon as well as its art de vivre. Combining culture, music and wine tasting, our discovery evenings are an expression of this. Don't miss the next one. It’s on Sunday, May 7th!


Discover the secrets of the papal chambers

Around a glass of wine, in the warm setting of the Hôtel De Cambis lounge, the doctoral student of history, Matteo Marcatilli, will reveal the secrets of the papal chambers of the Palais des Papes. Accompanied by Katsyarina on the piano, this talk is rich in anecdotes and descriptions that will take you back more than six centuries. Matteo Marcatilli combines the knowledge and rigor of the academic with the talent of the storyteller to present a fascinating account in a warm and friendly atmosphere.


Discover Avignon in a different way

The discovery evening at the Hôtel De Cambis will be a perfect introduction to your next visit to the Palais des Papes or will add background if you have already been. Matteo brings a depth and a very human dimension to a story too often presented in a purely factual way. What’s more, the evening will be an opportunity to enjoy the conviviality of the Hôtel de Cambis lounge. In the vaults built from the beautiful white stone of the region, with a glass of wine from the surrounding vineyards, with renowned appellations, you will savour an exceptional experience.

The Hotel De Cambis regularly organises discovery evenings to allow guests to share a convivial look into the city’s history. The next one takes place on Sunday, May 7th, between 18:00 and 19:00. Don't forget to book your places with our team as soon as possible!
