Even seeing it on a rainy day was no problem because many of the galleries/walkways are covered. OK admission charge.

I note the comments about this being comparable with the Coliseum, but I differ. Although the building from outside is stunning, particularly at nighttime; the internal seating (it is a working space)detracts and distracts. The Roman theatre next door is much better. Get the Avignon...More

If you find yourself in this region, Arles is well worth a few hours walk around. The Amphitheatre and the smaller Theatre Antique are the main draw, €9 entry for both. Pale in comparison to the Colosseum of Rome, it is still splendid, fully restored,...More

This great example of Roman engineering is a highlight of visiting Arles. Panoramic views of Arles can be had from the towers of the arena. Definitely a must see.

On our way it is worthwhile to stop here and visit this beautiful theatre. Although an entry fee it is managable and offes you a great site. At the exit do not forget to buy the € 0.- note for € 2.- ;)

The fact that it still exists is really the main draw for this ancient amphitheater. We toured it in a half and hour and were glad to have seen it but were not blown away.

Did not have the opportunity to enter this arena, much less watch one of bull fights (display?) for the fair, but from the outside, day and night, this location was truly impressive.

This is one of the larger and better preserved of the ancient amphitheatres constructed during the Roman Empire, and is still actively used for bullfights and other entertainment, although my husband facetiously commented that it looked like it was falling apart a bit! Even in...More

You can park nearby. I went by train, but saw plenty of parking, most on street and free. There was definitely free parking on there road by the railway station which is about a 5-10 minute walk.
