Arena of Arles looks like the arena of Nimes. Both were built at the end of the I century during the reign of the "good" Emperor Hadrian. Both arenas consist of 2 arcades of 60 arches each. The arcades are of different order: the lower...More

€9 entry fee gives you stunning views and a complete self-guided tour of this brilliant arena. There’s very little in English but it’s an amazing place. You can see the whole town from the top by walking round. The scaffolding diminishes things a little but...More

Has been extensively restored and is currently a working arena for bull-fights. There is much modern seating added, which detracts from the allure of the ancient antiquity of this place.

From the outside, the arena is impressive. But once you have paid to get in it is just like being in a, well, arena. A few corridors, modern seating etc. Yes, it is very old and in very good condition. But it lacked the power...More

This area has not fallen into the ruins of the coliseum in Rome. With the addition of some metal scaffolding and bleachers, the local people have managed to keep this a functioning area. However, you still get a feel for what is was like 2,000...More

You will enjoying climbing the steps for incredible views of Arles and the Rhône River. Hard to fathom life as a gladiator here but this place could help you envision it.

Well preserved arena. For those who have never seen a Roman amphitheatre, the Arles arena is a fine example of yesteryear. The views inside and outside are spectacular!

During a quick stop in Arles we walked around this impressive structure. It is imposing against the buildings, which are only a few centuries old, that surround this amphitheatre. Cafes and souvenirs stores abound in this area.

Two times, once to enjoy the horses and bulls show, the second for a free visit. The show is magnificent, about two hours with tipical horses, figures of the region, bulls, exercises and stunts. Is a piece of story, like Coliseum, but smaller. My daughter...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.
