First came here during the Feria D'Arles in 1998 and fell in love both with the region and the bullfighting experience. Man vs bull has been happening here for 2,000 years and if you've been to the Dordogne, you can see the earliest cave paintings...More

Having read other reviews, I am left wondering if I missed something at the Amphiteatre of Arles. We visited the Amphitheatre at Nîmes two days prevously and we were very disappointed with the Arles Amphitheatre. Firstly, it is full of seating scaffold inside and looks...More

This beautiful amphitheater dominates Arles. It is well maintained. Climb up the tower to get amazing views of Arles.

A step back to Roman times with a good view of how life was in those days. We were able to walk around quite freely and had chance to take many photos. It is amazing how much of the original architecture has survived.

We took a guided tour in English and were glad we did. The host was excellent and gave information and insights we would not have had if we simply wandered about. The restored areas really give you a feel of what this place would have...More

From inside and outside, this was a terrific feat of Roman engineering. We walked all round the galleries from where the views were great. The arena is still used for events, and some version of bullfighting still takes place though apparently the bulls aren't killed...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.
