Becoming Arlesians01 Jul 2017 | France Travel
The Eastern sunlight poured into our room this morning, I was glad to see some sun to start my day. We kicked ourselves this morning to be up and out for the Saturday market of Arles. I have never seen such a market. It was incredibly rich and varied. I will let the images speak for themselves.
Home for lunch after the market to eat the treats we had found.
After lunch we went back onto the streets of Arles for a van Gogh treasure hunt. You can go on a self guided tour of the locations in Arles where van Gogh created 10 of his famous paintings. We made it to 8 of them. One we couldn’t find and the last was too far out of town to go on foot.
Then to the Rhone for a couple more of the paintings including the Starry Night.
Then to a square for a drink at the cafe painted by van Gogh.
We wandered the city all day seeing so many sights.
Exhausted, we went back to our apartment for a rest before an evening out and Dinner. Afterwards, more wandering the streets.
Then, back home to enjoy our terrific apartment.
