Great walk!
Aug 2020
When staying in nearby Martigue, we decided to visit Arles for the day to do the Van Gogh Walk to retrace Vincent van Gogh. An enjoyable walk through a beautiful old town, can highly recommend it!

Best if You are a Van Gogh Fan
Oct 2019
Arles is certainly Van Gogh territory. This walk is something you might want to do if you are a Van Gogh fan and have some previous knowledge of VG and his works. It will certainly take you on a good walk around Arles and, if you are familiar with his work, it will likely mean something to you. It is interesting and you can definitely see how perspectives and landscapes have changed since VG's times. Worthwhile if you have the interest, but IMHO not likely to teach you much if you're not really interested and have no previous knowledge. But you'll get a good walk in and see a bunch of Arles.

Historical town with artistic links
Aug 2019
Bought the guide for EUR2 and went to all but one of the sites on the Van Gogh trails at the same time enjoyed the casual town atmosphere.

A Bit of a Disappointment
Jan 2020
Being big fans of Van Gogh's art, we were really excited about doing the Van Gogh Walk. We started out at the park, continued on to the Arena and then went to the Cafe. We were told that the Van Gogh Foundation had an exhibit of photography and only one painting by the artist, so we decided to skip that. The next day we went in search of the yellow house--which is now white and just has a medallion on it. Then we went in search of the bridge. We crossed the bridge, but never saw what Van Gogh painted. It was too early in the day to find the place for Starry Night. Perhaps a guided tour would have been better.

Interesting to see the sites in Arles where Van Gogh walked
Mar 2019
My wife and I visited Arles this past March. It was interesting to see the sites where Van Gogh painted many of his masterpieces. We walked to the Rhône River site of Starry Night, the hospital, the cafe, the arena and toward Alyscamps. For a Van Gogh lover seeing these sites was special.

In the Footsteps of Vincent
Nov 2019
Van Gogh lived in Arles in his most productive period during which he made numerous paintings and drawings in and around Arles.
It's a very strong feeling to be able to walk and retrace Vincent's places, including the famous yellow house, the Arles amphitheater or the "Café la Nuit" which later became Cafè Van Gogh.

Magnificent Art of VanGogh Walk!
Aug 2019
My husband and I visited Arles during a river cruise to the French Rivera. This was one of our shore excursions and we were fortunate to have had an English-speaking tour guide. One of my favorite artists is Van Gogh and I enjoyed learning about his life and the time he spent he in Arles.

We enjoyed the independent walking tour of Van Gogh and the opportunity to experience, photograph and enjoy it all. This is definitely for the people who enjoy impressionist art which we do.

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity.

A nice thing to do for Gogh lovers. Not sure for anyone else
Oct 2019
Overly touristic this "walk" might present some value for the undying can of Gogh. Not sure is a worthy effort for anyone else.

Like a Van Gogh
Sep 2019
It is a nice experience to walk in a city like Van Gogh did before. The city is really nice and charming, and it is not miracle, why Van Gogh made one of the most famous pictures here

Nice walk
Aug 2019
Not really into the art scene, but this area was nice. Left the tour and went on my own. No one in my group saw the kitchen area but me. And outside path was lined with photos of Van Gogh’s works. Near the parking spaces were two (we were told) Roman structures. Kinda impressive by themselves. It was time well spent here.
