you can mix and match the past with the present. Imagine carrying a canvas along and looking for the best views to paint. A good place to have a stop on a busy day. The area will not capture you as one of the curious...More

If you follow the directions on the Tourisme pamphlet, you don't need a guide and could probably do it much faster.

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

if you want to learn more about Vincent Van Gogh , you can do this "walk" , be sure to have your walkingshoes on your feet because it's a long walk in the city of Arles

Interesting to see where Van Gogh painted certain pictures in the area, but some sites are completely unrecognisable.

Outstanding interpreter from the visitor center. The lady who gave the tour was an expert on every aspect of Van Gogh and his time in Arle. Make every effort to make this the first experience you have in Arle.

Given that we are big Van Gogh fans, this walk was on my must-do list. But I have to say that we were very disappointed. We started at the tourist office, and the lady there was not very helpful at all. They did not have...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

Catch a regional bus from Arles to Saint-Rémy de Provence, then walk the 1.9km to Saint Paul de Mausole. If you catch a bus that travels over the Alpilles (eastern route from Arles), not only will you see spectacular... More
