Arles, between art and history
80 km away from Marseille, you will find the southern city of Arles, in France. At the heart of the wild and splendid Camargue region, this little 50.000 inhabitants town mainly lived thanks to tourism, you will soon understand why.
Arles has the "ville d’art et d’histoire" label (city of art and history) and totally deserves it.
The roman remains are Unesco listed and among the ruins of Antiquity, you should head the unavoidable theater, which is the most important remain of this period. If you are an archeology lover, you will also find around the city the 2nd century arena and so much more! If you prefer Midle Ages, from the abbey of Montmajour to the episcopal district, you will have a lot to see. Arles is also full of renaissance and classical buildings.
The great painter Van Gogh is also linked to Arles, what about following his path?
