Vincent Van Gogh is, perhaps, Arles most famous resident. Although he is said to have produced almost 200 paintings during his time here, there is not an original Van Gogh to be found in the town. Nonetheless, many of the buildings and cafes he painted are still here, so the effect can be somewhat like entering a familiar painting, a sort of artistic déjà vu. If the beauty of Arles awakens your Muse, you can buy some paints and canvas, get a rental car and go create your own masterpieces. May the spirit of Vincent be with you! Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large rental car fleet, so finding a car rental in Arles is both easy and economical.
Possibly the only thing that is more closely linked with Arles than Van Gogh is the Roman ruins. The Arena in the center of the city is still in use, as is the Roman Theater nearby. The Musée de l'Arles Antiques hosts a world famous collection of Roman Christian sarcophagi along with inscriptions, mosaics, sculptures and other artifacts. Roman and medieval structures abound in the region. Car rental will make touring these sites much easier. Feel a part of a living canvas as you take a self guided tour of the remarkable sites Van Gogh painted.
A popular local sport is Carmaguaise style bull fighting, wherein ribbons are plucked from the bull's horns and the bull is not harmed. It's almost more of a dance than a bullfight. Of course, being so close to the Mediterranean, you may just want to rent a car and dance away to the seashore. Questions about driving in Arles? Our driving information page should provide answers.
