We bought the city pass and enjoyed our visit to the Arena. It is in good shape although not as good as Nimes. Loved the views from the tower of the city and beyond.

While spending some days to visit Provence we have seen pictures of les arenes. Don’t recommend since although is the highlight of Arles it doesn’t justify a visit.

Even seeing it on a rainy day was no problem because many of the galleries/walkways are covered. OK admission charge.

I note the comments about this being comparable with the Coliseum, but I differ. Although the building from outside is stunning, particularly at nighttime; the internal seating (it is a working space)detracts and distracts. The Roman theatre next door is much better. Get the Avignon...More

If you find yourself in this region, Arles is well worth a few hours walk around. The Amphitheatre and the smaller Theatre Antique are the main draw, €9 entry for both. Pale in comparison to the Colosseum of Rome, it is still splendid, fully restored,...More

This great example of Roman engineering is a highlight of visiting Arles. Panoramic views of Arles can be had from the towers of the arena. Definitely a must see.

A two-tired Roman Amphitheatre was built in 90AD. It was capable of seating over 20,000 spectators and it was inspired by the Colosseum of Rome. After the fall of Roman Empire in the 5th century, the Amphitheatre was transformed into a fortress and was added...More

On our way it is worthwhile to stop here and visit this beautiful theatre. Although an entry fee it is managable and offes you a great site. At the exit do not forget to buy the € 0.- note for € 2.- ;)

Given it is something approaching 2000 years old and has had several different uses over its life, the amphitheatre at Arles is both is great condition and very impressive. Having visited the Coliseum, the Alres Arena is actually more complete and although much smaller (not...More

You can park nearby. I went by train, but saw plenty of parking, most on street and free. There was definitely free parking on there road by the railway station which is about a 5-10 minute walk.

Wifi? At a Roman amphitheatre? No. There is neither free nor paid WiFi at the amphitheatre.
