a day in arles

a day in arles

arles is a city on the rhone river in the provence region of southern france. it's famed for inspiring 200 paintings of vincent van-gogh during his final years including one of my favourite paintings, the starry night (side note, none of his actual paintings are in arles). arles is also famous for it's roman architecture and amphitheatre, charming side streets, bridges, shady squares, museums, churches and colourful umbrellas

recently i spent a day there with my grandma. we caught a train from orange just near her village vaison la romaine. arles actually turned out to be quite a cool and modern city despite all of the historic sights. it was filled with young artists, designers and creatives hosting numerous art and photography exhibitions. i couldn't stop taking photos everywhere i went. i really enjoyed my day and look forward to returning and spending a little more time here. below i have listed what my highlights were.
