Pope’s Palace of Avignon, the Setting for My Novel Muse

Here’s a new YouTube video that takes you on a tour of the Pope’s palace in Avignon. We begin outside the west façade of the palace, where a busker is entertaining for coins, enter through the double portcullis, take a look around the courtyards, peer out of the Pope’s indulgence window. Then we join the secret palace tour to see inside a room with a decorated wooden ceiling and go up the corkscrew staircase, the only one that goes from top to bottom. We emerge on the roof, where the wind is blowing. From here, we see a 360 degree video of the city below. I had fun putting this together from my own photos and videos of the palace. I hope you enjoy it.
