Arles is in Provence in the southeast of France. Remote, uneventful, but definitely no waste of time, Arles is absolutely steeped in Provençal culture. The museums are small, but have some interested artifacts. Unfortunately there are no Van Goghs to be found in the city, despite the fact that his residence in Arles was his most productive era.
The Roman arena (l'Arène d'Arles) is the main attraction here. You can wander through the same stone arches and passageways that were used in Roman days. Other sights include the Roman ruins, the marketplace, and a few museums.
