Overview
Arles, city of art, history & photography a Unesco World Heritage Site. Most visitors come in search of Van Gogh & Roman history - look for the cafe in Place du Forum he painted Cafe Terrace at Night. Arles founded in 46BC by Julius Caesar 2000 years ago, & Van Gogh who arrived in 1888. From Arles, we head into the Camargue region follow the River Rhône where it meets the Mediterranean & windswept beach of Piémanson, time to take in the air & beauty of the nature around. In the heart of the Camargue natural park, you will witness an amazing sight of wild animals & wild landscapes; pink flamingos, bulls & the famous white horses of Camargue. You also visit the capital of the regional park, Les Saintes Maries de la Mer, a town of Spanish gipsy traditions. Head to the rooftop of the town's church, admire the view of the Mediterranean before visiting the Ornithological park Pont de Gau with flamingos, egrets and many more species. It's a day discovering the secrets of the Camargue & Arles.

This was a fabulous tour - from exploring the history and architecture of Arles to enjoying the nature and beauty of the Camargue. It was an area I have long wanted to visit and Christopher was an incredible guide. We saw so many different intriguing areas but the day still

Response from oohprovence, Owner at Historic Arles to the wild & windswept beaches of the Camargue private tour
Responded Nov 4, 2019
Thank you for reviewing the tour - I had a great time too! The nicest thing doing what we do is that we get to share a little bit of your vacation. The Camargue is a really interesting part of Provence - very different to the cliché, Provence and combined with the ancient Roman town of Arles, we hope to show a new angle to what people know and understand - we are lucky to live in such an interesting and diverse region. Look forward to catching up with you next time you come visit and hope all is well in L.A! Best wishes Christopher OohProvence
