Although we did not do all of it, what we saw was very interesting and informative.... signs around the walk give a story of van Goghs stay in the area as well as pictures of his painting which were inspired by the view from that point.

An interesting walk that takes you back to the life of Van Gogh. It definitely gave me a better understanding of what inspired him.

It's a nice way to spend a few hours walking out of town and to see the hospital where Van Gogh was infirmed.

Wonderful walk about in such a beautiful, picturesque Provence town. Walk leads you thru town and outskirts, stopping at places where Van Gogh was inspired to create many of his famous masterpieces. Loved it!

Van Gogh spent about a year here before his death. This is a well-done, not splashy tribute to the remarkable and haunted man who painted Starry Night as a resident here. Replicas of his paintings are along the way with some explanation and you can see his room. Flower garden in the back offers time to reflect what it would... More

The mental institution which Van Gogh had stayed and painted a lot of his well known works is a must see.

The Vincent Van Gogh Walk is a must when visiting St. Remy. The assylum where Vincent resided in his last years is a fascinating place and I recommend a guided tour.

An educational stroll that enables you to stop and read about some of the paintings Van Gogh completed while he was being treated here. The Tourist Information office has a flyer with a map of the walk, and is actually a good starting point even though the first couple of stops precede this location. The walk consists of a number...
