The favorable city deserves that attention before winning the surrounding countryside. Stroll in the neighborhood of Arugula or visit the Museon Arles can mark a good starting point. Then roads progressed through the Camargue landscapes with its rice fields, marshes marshes and canals. Delta solar and wild, the Camargue has been shaped by the encounter of two giants, the Mediterranean and the Rhône. Étang de Vaccarès in the marshes of Romieu, the road leads to Salin-de-Giraud. The city was built to accommodate the workers of the exploitation of salt. The city is adjacent to grey salt dunes, the slides and the cars. This route then leads on the beaches of Piemanson, where lurks another vast universe. Then return to Arles will occur along the Grand Rhone.

Arles, cultural city break ancient and modern

Arles is an oasis of antiquity with its archaeology museum, Roman amphitheatre and the long-condemned ancient cryptoporticus. You'll travel back to the Middle Ages with a visit to the Church of St. Trophime and Montmajour Abbey that affords fantastic views all around. At the Fondation Van Gogh, learn about the painter's work and his influence on the art world, while the Réattu gives you an insight into 19th and 20th century art history. Don't forget to stop for lunch (we recommend J.L Rabanel) and follow that with more culture at the Actes Sud centre.
