Our Viking tour included a stop at the Amphitheatre and our guide was so knowledgeable about the history, both when it was built and in more modern times. She really made me want to come back and see a bull race or fight.
This place is incredible....because it is still in constant use after so many centuries. We were lucky enough to be here the day of the free annual Prestige Camargue horse show; in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the recognition of the breed of Camargue...More
Our Road Scholar guide told us of the history of this Roman arena. He told of the choice the people made to either save the gladiator who lost the battle, or to slay him. We made a cry to slay him and it rang throughout...More
It isn't just the Amphitheatre, there are other Roman bits. With the ticket for the Arena you can also visit the Theatre. Children are free too. The park below the theatre appears to have an entrance but we found it closed: you need to walk...More
Really enjoyed wondering around here for a while. Partly restored and partly original it is in very good condition and still used today. The 'new' additional seating detracts a little but it's necessary if it to be used. Amazing that something this old can be...More
One of the top attractions in Arles, this is a must see. There are interpretative panels in French and English which is good. I climbed the tower and walked around all levels. There weren't too many people there either.
Although not as large as the Rome Colesseum it’s every bit as historical. PLUS, it’s still used today for Bull Fights. But unlike the Bull Fights of yesterday, today that Matador simply must remove a scarf from the Bull’s horns. Just as dangerous for the...More
It's not too often that you get to see such an ancient Roman relic in such amazing condition. It's beautiful from the outside, but fully functional inside and still used for bullfights, etc. today. It doesn't take long to tour and it's certainly worth it,...More
Great arena,but very busy.The bus tours turned up and hundreds of people were following the paddles all around the arena...inside and outside...where there are more Roman remains.
Get there early,as the narrow streets get clogged up with tourists and you can have trouble getting through....More

The next bullfight in Arles is on the 2nd of July at 5.30pm. You can get more info and purchase your ticket (€14 - €36) by connecting to the arenes-arles website, option is on top of the TripAdvisor page. If the date doesn't suit you, bullfights are also held at the Arénes de Nimes, half an hour drive from Arles. Meat of the taureau is served in the surrounding restaurants after the event during feria. Do keep in mind the anti-corrida cause when deciding to support this kind of event.
