Rue de la Republique (Republic Street), Avignon
The street is nearly 1,300 feet long. It begins at the Clock Square and ends at the Court Jean Jaures. On the Republic Street, you will find shops, restaurants and cafes.
Nearby the Click Square on the Republic Street was the Hotel de la Marine, the residence of James Suart, knight of St George and pretender to the throne of England. He was renting for 800 old French gold coins per annum. He was followed by various English and Scottish nobles. Presumably this drove up rents in the neighborhood.
