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.

  • 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. 
  • Nice place with bars and restaurants where it is good to ask and rest during the visit of the city.

  • This plaza is full of tourists, restaurants and people. Okay to rest awhile, sit under the only vestige which remains of the Roman Forum with an ice cream and watch people. The attractive main square, part of the Roman column, is Café de nuit, which Van Gogh made famous. No more.
