Arles (Tarascon)

Known for its remarkable Roman ruins, Arles so inspired Van Gogh that he painted some 200 paintings here, including Sunflowers and The Yellow House. It was here that the Romans built their first bridge across the Rhône River, creating a vital overland route between Italy and Spain and facilitating the expansion of their empire. A short distance from Arles is the ancient and charming town of Tarascon. Its many medieval sites include a 12th-century church and a 15th-century castle that is rich with tales of a beloved ruler and a ferocious dragon.
