Arles with surroundings

Arles is a city almost 100 km west of Marseilles, about 30 km from the Mediterranean Sea. The city existed already in Roman times, and there are plenty of remains from those days. The old town has a medieval street plan with winding streets and narrow alleys. Beside the town itself, there is plenty to see in the vicinity, both cultural and natural sights. One day I went out to La Camargue, the area south of Arles, between the two arms of the Rhône. For two days in a row I went to the small town Saint-Rémy-en-Provence to see the town itself, but most of all walk in the small mountain chain the Alpilles. On my way from Saint-Rémy I had to go over Avignon, which gave me the opportunity to see this city where the popes reigned for almost 100 years. Arles itself I was able to explore in the mornings before I caught a bus around lunch-time.
