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.

  • Even without its association with Van Gogh, this square is above average in prettiness. Note the two columns in the facade of the hotel on the corner - part of the original Roman forum complex.  more »
  • Forum square a must-see on Arles absolutely unrelated to the status of Frédéric mistral, the terraces of coffee ☕️

  • Very small, so that the café 's terrace occupy almost the whole place (among them the famous with Van Gogh paintings), plus a monument in front of the hotel and the whole area. The main thing here-the atmosphere is always very lively and fun.
