Place du Forum, Arles
(3.2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Vincent van Gogh set up his easel frequently in Place du Forum, near the northeastern corner's famous Cafe Terrace. Historians say he looked south toward the artificially lit terrace of the popular coffee house--and beyond it to the darkness of the Rue du Palais and the tower of a former church (now Musée Lapidaire). By using our Arles vacation builder, you can arrange your visit to Place du Forum and other attractions in Arles.

  • Downtown is perhaps Place of City Hall, but a little more North North you find the real centre - the Place of the Forum. Several cafes includes the very well-known coffee bar at night that Van Gogh painted in 1889. There is the place of the Arles city - visited during your stay in Arles!

  • Nothing fancy about this place ruined by these multiple not very attractive terraces... it must be GOOD in summer.

  • Located near another Roman ruin, the the Cryptoportiques, the Forum is a nice place to sit, people watch, and have lunch or and evening meal.
