This colosseum is a must see! We were on a tour with Viking River Cruise so I'm not sure if there's a fee or if there's a tour available but it's worth visiting nonetheless. This massive colosseum is in the middle of this quaint French...More

We visited this to view Bull Fighting Carmargue Style - the bulls do NOT get killed or injured. This was quite an experience and can be recommended if only to see the fitness and energy of the boys/men who tackle speedy and sharp horned bulls....More

A must see if visiting Arles. A historic site from the times of the Romans. The surrounding area with Roman remains is also interesting.

It is much more fascinating seeing the amphitheatre from outside than from inside. The tribune is almost all covered by the scaffholdings for seatings.

The amphitheater is an imposing structure, and seeing it from the street was impressive. I would have been fine with only looking at it from the outside. A few minutes inside was more than enough for me.

This ancient Roman amphitheater was built in 90 AD. It is still used today for bullfighting, plays, and concerts. It was pretty amazing to be seated on stone that early Romans sat on to cheer on whatever was going on below. This is a must...More

This Amphiteatre dominates this part of Arles. The interpretive displays under the stands are interesting, but you can't go on the arena floor and access to the stands is limited as well. I though the charge was a bit high for what you got. Fortunately...More

Nice and impressive building-ish with a nice location. I'm not sure if you can normally enter, but the two times I passed by, it was not possible. It's still a nice view and if you happen to be in Arles, you should definitely check it...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.

Wifi? At a Roman amphitheatre? No. There is neither free nor paid WiFi at the amphitheatre.
