Arles is packed with things to do, so all you need to do is decide where to begin. Why not start by exploring some of the city’s fantastic roman ruins, all of which are listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. Choose from the amphitheatre, the ancient theatre, the Cryptoporticus, Constantine's Roman baths or the Roman circus remains, to name a few. Head over to the Place de la République and admire the 16th century Belfry built there. To learn more about the city’s roman heritage, visit the Departemental Museum of Ancient Arles, situated on the banks of the river Rhone. Admire the beautiful town houses which are dotted around the centre and wander through the old and new boroughs. The Vieux-Bourg (old borough) is now known as the Roquette quarter and was previously occupied by sailors, dockers and farmers. The Bourg-Neuf (new borough) has its roots in the shop-keeping trade. For something a little different, why not visit the Museon Arlaten, a museum focused on ethnography exhibiting the costumes, furniture, tools and objects of worship common to 19th century Provençal life. No matter what your taste, you’re sure to enjoy Arles when you stay at the Campanile Arles hotel.
