Monthly Event

Monthly Visits

August 7 – “Les Nuits de Nemaus" 
Cancelled (see you next year!)
September 26 – Saint-Gilles : Please note the new date!  
Once the fourth holiest place in the Christian world, its rich mediaeval architecture and imposing Abbatiale makes this somewhat off-the-beaten-track town well worth a visit.
October 24 – “Les Grands Jeux Romains”
 - an afternoon of excitement and thrills in the world’s finest surviving Roman amphitheatre. This unique event is the biggest ancient history re-enactment in Europe, and features over 500 re-enactors from all over the continent. This year’s theme, ‘Caesar & The Conquest of Rome”, traces the epic saga of the power struggle between Caesar and Pompey, including battles, sieges and more – and of course the ever-popular chariot race!
November – Le Museon Arlaten 
- newly re-opened after a 13-year hiatus and renovation, this stunning museum in central Arles showcases the history, traditions and heritage of Provence. The visit includes lunch.
Watch out for more details and reservations!
