During our trip to Provence next month, we're planning to visit Arles. I've looked on here for the "things to do" there. The Roman museum sounds like a must, so that's in, but considering we're also going to Nimes and Orange during our trip, and their Arenas and Theatres sound much better than the ones in Arles, I'm thinking i don't need to allocate the time and spend money visiting Arles' ones as well. The other "things to do" on here for Arles, don't sound that interesting either, so a flying visit might be enough, rather than spending a whole day in Arles - allowing me to visit the Carmargue (although this sounds a bit "hit or miss" depending on the Flamingoes mood too) and other attractions in the vicinity.
Is this a fair opinion of Arles or am I making a mistake?
Additionally, I'm interested in Van Gogh (who isn't?!) and have been aware of his connection with Arles for some time, but it doesn't sound like there is much there now for him as the 'yellow house' doesn't still exist and much of the town looks different apparently and I suppose not surprisingly. I've read about the Espace Van Gogh, but that doesn't sound that interesting to me, so I'm not likely to want to spend time in Arles on "the Van Gogh trail", unless I'm missing something here?....
