If you are a fan of Van Gogh, the walk is a great way to explore the town and take it the atmosphere that attracted such a great artist. Follow the map and you will find the exact spots where he set up his easel....More

The visitor center will be a helpful start to get you going in the right direction to follow the Van Gogh walk. The markers are embedded in the sidewalk and a bit worn making them more difficult to spy. More than looking for exact replica...More

While the are no Van Gogh works on display here. You can visit the areas he painted. The walk encompasses some Roman ruins and is very photographic and the tour shows you were to eat and shop.

The main walk visits 10 locations which Vincent painted during his turbulent time in Arles. Image boards are located at each point on the trail with extracts fro his letters describing his thoughts about the painting. Fascinating. The last location is the Langloise Bridge which...More

Not sure on the cost of the Guided tour either, but they don’t offer all languages every day, so call ahead to book for a tour in your language of choice. The pamphlet for the self-guided walk costs €1 and is available from... More
