Arles is a new South. At the crossroads of the Camargue, the Alpilles and the Crau, just an hour from Avignon TGV and Marseille airport, Arles is a destination in its own right. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Arles has been famous since antiquity for its arena and ancient theater built by the Romans two millennia ago.

Creative and cultural, Arles is a city of international calibre: LUMA Arles, Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles, the Rencontres de la Photographie, the Lee Ufan Foundation, Actes Sud publishing house, the Museon Arlaten, colorful Arlesian férias, and many more: there is always something going on in Arles.
