Roman Colosseum in Arles, France
The historical city of Arles is in central southern France along the Rhone River, in the area of Provence. The nearby Camargue delta area near the Mediterranean is considered part of Arles, where wild flamingos, bulls, and horses roam. The prominent landmark in the center of Arles is the Roman Colosseum built in 90 AD, which remains in great condition. Many narrow and pedestrian streets are in historical Arles. Homes are centuries old and full of character. Other landmarks are the Gallo-Roman theater, the Baths of Constantine, the Church of St. Trophime, and the Yellow Van Gogh Cafe where Vincent Van Gogh painted. Vincent Van Gogh lived in Arles from 1888 to 1889 and made over 300 paintings and drawings while living there.
