With the first bridge over the Rhone River, Arles was a key stop on the Roman Road from Italy to Spain, the Via Domitia. Vincent Van Gogh settled here in the late 1800’s. Much of the town was destroyed during World War II. It is a great place to see Roman ruins and the aqueducts nearby and some nice museums. Van Gogh completed many of his most famous paintings here including The Night Cafe, Yellow Room, Starry Night Over the Rhone, and L'Arlesienne. Definitely worth the visit.
