  • If you are in Arles you must check out the Roman Amphitheater at the center of town. There are many beautiful little roads and alleys leading to this structure. It’s truly a beautiful sight.

  • It's awe inspiring to see such structures. Remnants from and ancient past, silently reminding us that our life on this earth is but a fleeting moment. At the same time asking us what we will leave behind. 2000 years and still standing. Definitely worth the visit
  • We were looking forward to visit this site since some time. We have watched several YouTube videos about this touristic attraction before we even knew will visit Arles. Overall the place did not disappoint us. The huge structure which dated since almost 2000 years ago made us appreciate the care of the local authorities to preserve and maintain this important site. We recommend taking the time and sit on one of the benches while imagining what went on in the area many hundreds of years ago. The views from one of the towers is great too.
