Arles to Marseilles by train?

by lamoo

We will be disembarking from the river boat in Arles and taking the train to the Airport in Marseilles. I was wondering how close to the airport (Marseilles) the train station is and what is the best way to get directly to the airport.

Re: Arles to Marseilles by train?

by Sarastro

There are trains from Arles to Vitrolles station which connect by bus to MRS (Marseille Marignan).

Fares run about 11€, en route time about 1 hour.

Travel Tips for Arles

Café la Nuit

by Lady_Mystique

Van Gogh was fascinated by the beauty of the Arlesian sky at night, just as he had been fascinated by the powerful colors of the spring countryside ("that yellow sea"), and the deep daylight sky.

He lived on the Place Lamartine, but spent time all over the city during his short stay. Nightlife was concentrated in the cafés and cabarets where he met the few acquaintances he immortalized in Arles.

One evening in September 1888 the solitary painter set up his easel here on the Place du Forum...the beginning or end of his evening stroll among the "night owls".

Prepare for mosquitos..big, hungry ones

by tilapia

Bring mosquito repellant! According to our waiter, as we swatted gigantic mosquitos from our necks, they are the "the specialites de la region". Unfortunately, we didn't have any repellant and after travelling around Provence, we have huge musquito bites as souveneirs

Joli Flamant...

by davequ

Symbol of the Camargue, they breed and hatch their babies in the Camargue spring and summer.

In the fall they migrate to northern Africa as the Camargue can actually get dangerously cold for them in the winter.

Theatre Antique

by aliante1981

The Roman theatre, begun by Augustus in the 1st century, was mostly destroyed, since its stones were considered prime building material for those who lived in Arles in the 5th century and later. Many of the churches of the time, in fact, had at least some stones from the Theatre Antique incorporated in them. So now just some of the seats and only two Corinthian columns (called the ‘two widows’) remain.

Here the famous Venus of Arles was discovered in 1651, during the works to recover the Theatre, for by the time it was completely hidden by residences and gardens. A copy of a masterpiece of Hellenistic statuary, Venus of Arles was broken into three pieces and armless when discovered. Arles offered it to Louis XIV, who naturally accepted it. And it was Louis XIV who had it restored. Today you can see it in the Louvre museum. There were other statues found, which are today on display in the Museum of Pagan Art.

In present days, the theatre of Arles was put to its original use: it stages Arles Festival that takes place each summer. Tickets for this should be bought well in advance. To reach the theater, take rue de la Calade from the city hall. 2.5 Euros for adults, 1.5 Euros for children. Open daily from 9 in the morning till 7 in the evening.

The Dioramas At the Arlaten Demand Careful Study

by hquittner

The dioramas inside the Arlaten are quite fine. They are the equal of those at any of the Tussaud galleries. One is a Christmas Eve gathering in the home of a Camargue family. Another is a visit to the dressmaker with several workers sewing away. Still another displays a visit by female friends to a mother and newborn child bringing them special symbolic gifts. There are detailed collections of aspects of dress such as head ware. Some displays require individual notice here.
