Eglise St-Trophime used to a cathedral but was down graded. In 250 AD Trophimus of Arles became first Bishop of Arles.
Out of Arles: Sunflower farm
If you come at the right time, you will notice loads of sun flower farms around the region. Since this is the first time I come across a sunflower farm, I was absolutely stunned!
Visit the coliseum
The coliseum is one of the largest and best preserved in the Roman world. During the Middle Ages it was used as a sort of castle, and a tower and other structures were added.
Le cafe la nuit
This is the cafe seen in a painting by Van Gogh. It is in Place du Forum near the center of Arles. Becoming pretty commercial now.
