Arles Ampitheater
1 of 15
The Arles Ampitheater is one of southern France's best preserved amphitheatres as well as one of its grandest. Now used for bull-fighting as opposed to its original chariot races, visiting Arles Amphitheatre really gives an insight into what it would have been like to enjoy a day out in Roman Gaul.
