Arles

3.5

Soul of Provence

Remote, uneventful, but definitely not a waste of time, Arles is absolutely steeped in Provençal culture. Enjoy a guilt-free lazy day, starting with a stroll along the Rhône River, followed by a dip into a local cafe, and ending with a little window-shopping in quaint shops. In the Bouches-du-Rhône department, Arles is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Dutch post-Impressionist painter, Vincent van Gogh lived in Arles in 1888–1889, and produced over 300 paintings and drawings during his time here. Chico Bouchiki, co-founder of the music group Gipsy Kings, is also from this town. For the most part, the town is small enough to enjoy by foot, otherwise you can rely on taxis, buses, or bicycle rentals for sightseeing. Arles is in Bouches-du-Rhone.
