Bright start to the morning after a good night's sleep. A light breakfast and then off to explore Arles. It's a fairly large town. It has a Bull Ring, an Roman amphitheatre and it gave van Gogh a home to paint his Sunflowers. He shared his flat with his mate, Gaugin before they fell out and Goghy went short sighted! ( he cut his ear off and so his specs wouldn't stay on - boom boom) We didn't ...

... it was the weekend and very soon after New Year's Day.
I missed out on seeing the Gardens and the Castle as I arrived late and they'd already done it.
From here we also did a half-day trip to Arles - see next entry.
There are other smaller villages around to do day trips to/from, such as Avignon.
Marseilles and Montpelier are also 2-3 hours away by train.
