Full Description of the Walking Tour in Arles

 

The city of Arles has a charming Old Town with different sites dating back to the Roman era. Walk around the narrow streets and then enter and visit one of the most important treasures, the Amphitheatre, in French the Arènes d'Arles, inspired by the colosseum in Rome! This Roman monument dates back from Ancient Rome (90 AD), can hold 20,000 spectators who enjoyed chariot races and bloody hand to hand battle shows. Fun fact: in the Middle Ages, a real city was built inside the ramparts of the colosseum that was not until the 18th century that it was cleared to protect its status of historical monument. Nowadays it is used for concerts the Feria d'Arles and plays.
