Arles Town Visit

As you arrive in Arles, choose from a variety of walking tours to explore this charming town. Discover the historic city of Arles, a UNESCO World Heritage site renowned for its impressive Roman monuments. Opt for a walking tour of the historic center, where you'll visit iconic landmarks such as the Amphitheater, the Antique Theater, and Saint Trophime Church.

The Roman City & Sites

If you're fascinated by history and culture, this option is perfect for you. Arles underwent a significant urban transformation after the establishment of the Roman Colony of Arelate in 46 BC. Many of the Roman monuments in Arles date back to the 1st century. The Roman Amphitheater, constructed in the late 1st century, is larger than its counterpart in Nîmes and could accommodate up to 25,000 spectators. The Antique Theater, requested by Emperor Auguste, could hold up to 10,000 spectators at once and remains one of the best-preserved theaters in France. Explore these ancient sites and learn about their historical significance, including the discovery of the famous Venus of Arles during early archaeological excavations.

The Roman Forum

Discover the Roman Forum of Arles, situated at the intersection of the Cardo (north-south axis) and the Decumanus (east-west axis). While only two fragments of the Forum remain, its foundations are of particular interest, as they are built on a cryptoporticus—a covered corridor or passageway. In Arles, the cryptoporticus might have served as a barracks for public slaves, although it was too damp for long-term storage purposes.

On the Footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh

Art enthusiasts will delight in this option, which delves into the life of Vincent Van Gogh during his time in Arles from February 1888 to May 1889. Van Gogh created approximately 300 paintings and drawings during his stay. Follow your guide through the town of Arles as they point out the locations where the artist set up his easel, marked by panels depicting his famous works. For an enhanced experience, consider adding tickets to the Arles Van Gogh Foundation during the booking process.

Saint-Rémy de Provence

En route to the charming village of St Remy, enjoy a photo stop at the Plateau des Antiques to admire the Roman triumphal arch and mausoleum. Visit Saint-Paul de Mausole, where Van Gogh stayed for a year. This former lunatic asylum is where the artist sought refuge after his breakdown in December 1888, which famously resulted in the self-mutilation of his left ear. It was during his stay here that he created some of his most renowned works, including "The Starry Night." Upon arrival in Saint Remy de Provence, explore one of the prettiest villages in the area, known for its picturesque squares and as a summer retreat for chic Parisians. Enjoy free time for personal discovery and lunch, and be sure to visit the vibrant Provence Market held on Wednesdays.

Les Baux de Provence

Continue your journey to the Alpilles mountain region, celebrated for its vineyards and olive trees. Arrive at the medieval hilltop village of Les Baux-de-Provence, perched on a rocky spur and offering breathtaking panoramic views of the Provence countryside. Take advantage of free time to wander through the narrow streets, explore art galleries, and discover the remnants of the 10th-century fortress. Don't miss the extraordinary Carrières de Lumières, a unique light and sound show in Europe housed within an ancient limestone quarry. Marvel at the captivating visuals projected onto the massive 14-meter high limestone walls, creating a truly immersive experience.

At the heart of the Alpilles, Les Baux de Provence's historic site and former quarries, dating back to Roman times, transport visitors into a magical world of entrancing images and music. The Carrières de Lumières, once a source of white limestone for the construction of Les Baux and its citadel, now presents a captivating multimedia spectacle.

After your visit to Les Baux de Provence village, we will conclude the tour and return to Aix en Provence, marking the end of our services. Book now to embark on a memorable full-day private tour, immersing yourself in the enchanting towns and authentic beauty of Provence.
