Museum
“Okay so this is the most famous museum in Arles. But it has reasons to be so, as it holds some of the most important Roman collections. Ten years ago, when Caesar's bust was found, and this is where it went. The collection of amphoras is amazing, but people come from all around the world to see the ship that is conserved in the museum.”

National Park
“This is a personal favorite. This is at a walking distance and is perfect for a hike. You are able to walk all the way to the top where the metal tower is. With all the plants around like Rosemarie, thyme it makes you smell amazing. The breeze allows you to relax and enjoy the truly amazing view. Don’t forget to bring comfortable walking shoes. (No Gucci! ) ”

Museum
“Picasso loved Arles. His passion for bullfighting will make him become friends with photographer Lucien Clergue, and then with the young curator of the Réattu Museum, Jean-Maurice Rouquette. In 1957, Picasso was invited to exhibit about sixty drawings, which he donated to the museum in 1971, in addition to the Portrait of Lee Miller in Arles (1937), painted just after Guernica. Augmented with engravings, archives, photographs and posters, the whole is called The Picasso of Arles.”
