Worthy of a visit. Full Roman Amphitheatre. We went to the Bull Event on a wednesday. Not Bull fighting but a local game. Very enjoyable experience.

The amphitheatre and auditorium are the most impressive in the whole of France. Take time to walk around the ruins and imagine the spectacles that took place here 2000 years ago

This amphitheatre is still in use today. If you go online and check out upcoming events, you'll be able to better experience the coliseum adventure. If you are on a bus tour, you'll be taken through some pretty, twisty streets until you come upon the coliseum,....pretty breathtaking. It has been partially restored, enough to make it usable nowadays, but enough... More

It is located in the middle of Arles. The amphitheater is well preserved and offers views of the surrounding areas and the river. We enjoyed the historical significance, and trying to imagine life back in that time.

Just amazing. Lovely little side streets too. We walked around the top for stunning views. During October half term it wasn't too busy. If you can buy the multi pass ticket to save money

We went to a bull race in mid-August. It was pretty much as-billed. A group of 12-or-so young men trying to bait a bull into chasing them so that they can try and jump out of the arena (over a fence) just ahead of the bull. Bulls are changed every 15 minutes or so. The show lasts for two hours... More

It is worth visiting Arles only to visit this amphitheatre. It is really well preserved and you get access to almost all of the theatre. There is a wonderful view of Arles from one of the towers that was added in medieval times. The theatre is still being used today and there are modern spectator seats mounted in the arena... More

Back in time in one of the last remaining roman amphitheatres in Ancient Gaules. Can also have a café nearby and off to follow the Van Goth 's route!
