Stunning Roman relic still in use for events well worth a visit. It is amazing to imagine that it is still in use after almost two thousand years.

When you first come upon this site your first thought is of Rome's Colosseum because of it design. Of course it is much smaller. Interesting aspect is that it is still used today for bull contests and other events. Hard to miss from anywhere in...More

The arena is very impressive - well maintained for its age. The history is fascinating, especially the fact that there were houses inside during the Middle Ages. Impressive that it is still being used today.

The amphitheatre is a great Roman remain, a must visit. Even though the upper levels of the original Roman building have gone what you can go round is an authentic Roman arena, one that is still used.

An amazing relic, well worth a visit. Good access (most not suited to wheelchairs, though) to most areas, without the crowds. On the day I went, there was very few people. Use your imagination to hear cheering crowds over thrilling gladiator battles. 2000 years of...More

This is a must see. The Roman amphitheater is in pristine shape and quite beautiful juxtaposed to the French shops and cafes.

If you want to go inside obtain at least the 'Liberty' city pass which allows you 4 entrances plus 2 museums from the TI in town. We spent a little more-15€ and got a pass good for everything (except Foundation Van Gogh which is not...More

My hotel faced this large coliseum from one BC. It was interesting to see for awhile then it just became a nuisance to walk around.

After passing the ticket kiosk, find the English display under the second arch describing the arena's history and renovation. The arena is a fine example of Roman engineering. The entrance fee is covered by the Liberty Pass. Open year round

A good site in the centre of Arles. Easy to view from several levels and to get good views of the town from the tower. Long opening hours helps to avoid the crowds

Response from Lee W | Reviewed this property |
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.
Do you have free wifi? If not what do you charge for wifi?

Wifi? At a Roman amphitheatre? No. There is neither free nor paid WiFi at the amphitheatre.
Admission? The official site is the Unesco website which describes the place, but I can't find any info on admission, hours, etc. for this and the other Roman sites.

In April 2016 the prices were €8 full and €6 reduced price, accompanied children under 18 free. A bargain. The opening hours are 9am to 6pm in April and October, 10am - 5pm from November to March, and 9am - 7pm from May to... More
