I really wasn't;t sure about visiting an old graveyard but it turned out to be a diverting hour. My recommendation is to read the description from the tourist guides before going. It all makes much more sense.

This is a quiet and shady spot full of atmosphere, history and art. Not too far on foot from the centre (unlike the Van Gogh bridge which while very worth it is much more of a hike).

A few minutes' walk from the city centre, I probably wouldn't have bothered if it hadn't been free entry with the Arles Avantage pass. A peaceful place to stroll around for half an hour but of limited historical interest compared with other sites in the...More

Upon arriving in Arles on a day trip from Avignon my immediate focus was on the Arénes d'Arles and Cryptoporticus. Les Alyscamps was just something to tick off on my list and inevitably proved to be the final attraction I visited. Ever since however the...More

This is a quiet, peaceful spot, an easy walk from the town centre. The sarcophagi are plain rather than evocative, but you can read Van Gogh's letter describing how he painted the main avenue, and the church at its end has a rather austere beauty...More

You may not want to put this ancient Roman necropolis on top of your list if you only have a couple of days in Arles unless, like me, you are into quiet places, Roman architecture and nature. After seeing everything I wanted to see in...More

Visiting this ancient cemetery, once one of he biggest and best known necropolis, gets you to think back to history and the people hundreds of years ago. The church is old, the old sarcophagus along the sidewalk as well. This is definitely a place to...More

We visited Les Alyscamps in Arles because we generally love a good cemetery for it's historical value. We were a bit disappointed because we felt the cemetery to be a bit barren and then later reading the information we found a lot of the better...More

Fascinating history. Convergence of Roman culture and Christianity. Like the Champs Elysées in Paris (Elysian Fields) les Alyscamps was the road leading into and out of Arles, an old Roman city gifted several important sites including an arena and theatre, by Caesar for its loyalty....More

This is a lovely place away from the (slightly) busier town centre - indeed, it is hard to believe that somewhere like this could be only ten minutes walk away. It is a walkway lined with trees, with a mausoleum at the end, which is...More
