Arles is a town that almost everyone feels as if they already know and love it. Used as inspiration for a great number of Vincent Van Gogh’s most popular masterpieces, Arles boasts breath-taking winding streets and cobbled squares with quaint painted house fronts and an atmosphere of true French authenticity. Your Campanile Arles Hotel is only one kilometre from the very centre of Arles, making it the perfect base from which to explore this exceptionally beautiful area. Arles was originally a Celtic settlement as far back in time as the Bronze Age, before being taken over by Romans.
Arles was once a more important port than Marseille , a favourite haunt of Julius Caesar himself. This longstanding history of victory and grandeur has characterized its modern day atmosphere and charm; the city still boasts a 12,000-seat theatre and 20,000-seat amphitheatre that continue to stage events such as bullfighting to this day. With only a 50,000-strong population but a metropolitan area seven times that of Paris , this is a city steeped in heritage but without the hustle and bustle of the country’s capital city.
