The Antique Theatre is still being used for entertainment events like plays and concerts. Those are only two of the many Roman and Medieval sites Arles is home to.
All that AND Vincent Van Gogh! He arrived here in 1888 and went on to paint most of his classics here including, Café Terrace at Night, Starry night over the Rhone, and Courtyard of the hospital at Arles. It is pretty neat to visit the actual sites of these works and see what he saw. Talk about art and culture, Arles just oozes it.
The food isn't too bad either. We of course had to have crepes for breakfast which were fabulous. We also think we have found the location of all of Ireland and the UK's vegetables! Again fabulous. We must also announce that the streak is over. Two months having at least a beer each day ended upon our arrival here. We have traded in the pint glasses for wine glasses. We purchased an ok bottle of Cote du Rhone wine for about 4 bucks Canadian, not bad. We think we can get used to this! Off to Avignon.
