Arles is a city filled with history, but strangely enough a city that didn?t get my enthusiasm. To me it was a city packed to full of cars. Arghhh, it was impossible to take a descent picture of anything as there would be at least a dozen cars parked in front of the building. There were cars parked everywhere in the streets, even surrounding the famous monuments. The other disappointing thing was that the ?Eglise St-Trophine? was closed, I really was looking forward in going here.
Arles is a Roman city, with all kinds of Roman remains. In the picture you can see ?Les Arènes?, one of the largest, best-preserved Roman monuments in Provence. This amphitheatre is still in use nowadays, sadly enough for bullfights. It?s possible to visit the amphitheatre when there are no fights as well. I didn?t go inside as the entrance fee was a steep. But the view from the top tier over Arles is supposed to be very nice.
The reason why I went here was the ?Eglise St-Trophine?, one of the most beautiful churches in the Provence. Sigh, I didn?t get any further than to look at it from the outside though as it was opened when I was in Arles.
