Arles or Nimes?

by BlackIsis

Hi all, I will be in the south of France for a few days during May and am wondering whether to stay at Nimes or Arles? I have stayed at Arles before and loved it and would like to go back, but Nimes looks good too. I will just be wandering around the Roman remains, shops, restaurants, markets, streets etc.
Nimes seems to be more focussed on bullfighting, from what I have discovered so far. Are there any major differences? Anybody been to both and have a strong preference?
I will have my own car and staying in the city centre so assume crime rate/driving exactly the same in both places.
So if anyone lives in the area or has spent time in both places it would be nice to have your thoughts.

The Maison Carree (a perfectly preserved Roman temple) and the Roman amphitheatre are among the best preserved Roman remains to be found anywhere, and if you haven't already seen it, the Pont du Gard is not to be missed. Aigues Mortes - with intact mediaeval walls - is only 35 km away and easy to reach by bus, and Montpellier is another attractive poption for a day trip - 1/2 an hour by train and 2 trains an hour.

Hard decision they are very different .I think I vote for Nimes. The ruins are quite amazing. We enjoyed having a drink there by the ruins ,in the evening and listening to some pretty good jazz music.

Nimes is a much larger city. Arles is smaller but still with magnificent ruins and plenty to see and do. You can easily reach the Camargue and Aigues-Mortes from either. Traffic is lighter in Arles and parking would probably be easier in Arles.

Personally I prefer Arles but that's because I'm not fond of cities. It depends on your personal interests. It certainly would be easy to stay in Arles and make Nimes a day trip.

Other interesting side trips would be Les Baux, Pont du Gard, Avignon, the Abbey at Montmajour and Daudet's Mill just north of Arles. You certainly won't run out of things to do in either place.

You might type each town into the VT Search Window above and see what has been writtten here about them. There will be photos, links and reviews to check and that may help you make a decision.

You have your own car so do both. I travel through out France in a car during the World Cup /98 and every city was a new adventure. We crisscross France to attend the games not knowing anything about the cities and discover so much. The landscapes, history and architect was wonderful but even better was the people we met along the way giving us tips of what we should see in and around the city. From the beaches in Birritz to the Axe provence, Paris. It was a sigh to see, over and over again.

Arles has lot to offer for art lovers, this was the place where Vincent Van Gogh lived in 1888 (from 1889 on he lived nearby in St Remy) and where he painted mostly landscapes. Both Nimes and Arles have an active bullring in Roman settings, old roman era arenas maintained in good conditions and both are worth visiting with or without a bullfight.

Travel Tips for Arles

The Yellow House...just before WWII

by Lady_Mystique

Here is what Van Gogh's "Yellow House" looked like
just before it was bombarded during WWII.

Van Gogh's residence was on the upper floor, to the right,
that shows shutters (originally green) at the windows.

Ste. Martha And the Tarasque

by hquittner

In the Arlaten Museum is an amphibious dragon, the Tarasque, that was used in the annual Festival in Tarascon in the 19C. The festival is still held there on the last Sunday in June. The city is 10 miles north of Arles. The festivities were begun by "good king Rene" in the mid 15C. Ste. Martha vanquished the dragon in Tarascon shortly after she arrived from Jerusalem in about AD 50. (We will write more about this under Tarascon).

Notre Dame de la Major

by aliante1981

In this church the cowboys of Camargue – a really magnificent natural park to which Arles serves as a perfect gateway – celebrate the feast dedicated to their patron saint St. George. Now, this seemed a bit funny to me. The church’s not dedicated to St. George, right? Still can’t make my mind about how that can be…

The actual building was constructed in the time period between 12th and 17th centuries, so you’ll see a church which is essentially an architectural styles’ mix. It stands on the site of a Roman temple that belonged to approximately to the same time as the Amphitheatre and Theatre Antique.

The Mediveal City

by micrologus

The tour leads you from the Church Saint Trophime to the Cloister Saint Trophime, the old entrance to the cloister, the 'Tour de Roland', the 'Porterie du Grand Couvent', St Jean de Moustier and St Blaise Chapels, 'Les Alyscamps', the 'Tour des Mourgues', Notre Dame de la Major church, the towers at the arena, the 'Cour de la commanderie de Sainte Luce', 'Eglise des Prêcheurs' and the 'Palais des Podestas'

Le Theatre Antique

by rwlittle

Near to the amphitheatre are the ruined remains of a Roman theatre. Over the years, the stones were quarried away to be used in other buildings, leaving mostly jumbled remains.

The photo shows one view of Le Theatre Antique, with myself standing in front of the "two widows" (the two standing columns remaining).
