It is not everyone’s fortune to be able to walk the road of a legend. But the people of Arles and the travellers lucky enough to chance upon this city can achieve this aim with great ease. Various places in Arles have been Vincent Van Gogh’s muse and the city has made a trail out of these various locations where he set down his easel and painted.
The trail is literally a pathway across Arles with Van Gogh’s paintings recreated on cement easels and placed at the location of inspiration. It aims to let people experience the angle that Van Gogh took with his paintings, his perspective and reach an understanding of his lifestyle. The trail consists of the following stops:
- Les Quais du Rhone
- Le Pint de Trinquetaille
- Le Cafe “La Nuit”
- Le Vieux Moulin
- Les Alyscamps
- Les Arenes
- Le Jardin Public
- Le Espace Van Gogh
- Le Pont Van Gogh
These locations have been the inspiration for about 200 of Van Gogh’s works in Arles. Though not all his painting have been recreated, even then the Van Gogh Trail is a road to take for a walk with art and culture.
