... best ones was the Asylum Garden at Arles as it still looks very much like the way he painted it in 1889. We also decided to go to the location of Stormy Night at night and that was really cool as that is one of the most famous paintings world wide, Europe has so much cool history.

Arles was such a beautiful and charming town. We could have easily spent an entire day there!!! It is definitely worth visiting if you have not been there. After leaving Arles, it was back to the bus for the trip to Avignon. Upon arriving, we saw the Pont d'Avignon and we ...
