Check this web site for bus connections. http://www.beyond.fr/travel/bus01.html

Your hotel can give you more up to date information but this gives you an idea about what is covered by bus. There are also good train connections along the coast and between major cities.

Travel Tips for Arles

No Window Screens, Wooden Shutters, Yes

by LauraWest

The cleverness of sturdy wooden shutters on most windows in France and Italy, right? To a first time visitor, me, I found this custom of architecture wise. Closed -- They keep the hot sun out when you want it out. I'm sure they help rooms stay warmer in the winter, too. The windows in this photo must have been on an climatized room ( air conditioned).

I was in Europe for over a week when I realized --- no window screens!! This is fairly unheard of in the USA. I asked my Paris hostel roomies, from Dublin, about it. Window screens? What are those? I had to describe them, as they had never seen any before. Don't birds fly in your windows? No, never, she answered. Pretty smart birds in Europe, I said. Later, in my Florence hotel I met a dumb pigeon!! The desk clerk tried to get it to abandon the perch outside my room door, at the request of another guest down the hall, but it was "no go." It was a pretty view afterall, so was the pigeon smart or dumb? I don't know ;>)) Maybe it just wanted a comfortable hallway to spend the night!

The Musee de l'Arles Antique Is At the Town Edge

by hquittner

The Musee de l'Arles Antique is at the south edge of Arles next to the main road. It was opened in 1995 and combines works previously shown in two museums previously housed in no longer used 17C churches near the Pl. de la Republique. It can be quickly reached by taking a local bus for a five minute trip from the Pl. des Lices. The interior contains both collections , many more works and models that make the real treasures more understandable.

Alyscamps

by akikonomu

A good thing about the Alyscamps was its remoteness. Hardly any tourists were there - wonder what it's like now (maybe someone can inform me)

Couldn't find the ticket booth and walked right in, only to have a French Madame shrieking for 20 francs sil vous plait.

It's actually a small compound easily covered within less than 15 minutes (if you just make one round). The most noticeable and well retained structure is the arch. The burial sites are still distinguishable. Besides that, it's lots of rocks and ruins.

Eglise Saint-Trophime

by Redang

The Eglise (Church) Saint-Trophime is also known as Primatiale or the Cathedral of St Trophime.

Built over several stages, the main part of the building dates back to the 12th century, and today it is a Parish Church.

It was Built over several stages and the main part of the building which we see today dates back to the 12th century, when its façade, orginally sober, was highlighted by a splendid historic statuary. It is one of most important Provençal Romanesque buildings. In addition, it is one of the churches containing relics on the Way of St James. A Gothic choir replaced the Romanesque apses in the 15th century.

The monument was built over several stages. It has the

Cathedral and Cloister of Saint-Trophime

by Lady_Mystique

~ This wonderful cathedral and cloister in the centre of Arles is open to visitors who want to retrace the steps of the monks who passed from their dormitories to the Cathedral nearby.

~ This Romanesque cathedral, built in the III C. and rebuilt in the XII and XIV C. is famous for its sculptures and its imposing facade depicting the Last Judgement.

~ If you are so inclined, or lucky in your timing, you might be able to catch a mass in progress. I found the hymns being sung very beautiful!

~ The Cloister has carved vaults, pillars, Roman capitals of the XII C. and the tombstone of Geoffrey Ist. Personally, I found the tapestries illustrating the various episodes of the life of King Barberousse absolutely gorgeous!!
