Place du Forum Tours

Place du Forum
Located at the heart of historic Arles and once the site of a Roman Forum, the Place du Forum has served as the town’s political and social center since ancient times. Today, the public square remains an atmospheric spot, clustered with restaurants and cafés, and buzzing with life both day and night.

The Place du Forum has also earned a place in the limelight thanks to the iconic ‘Café la Nuit’, better known as ‘Café Van Gogh’, which stands on the square’s southeast corner. Famously immortalized in Van Gogh’s 1888 painting ‘Café Terrace at Night’, the café’s distinctive yellow façade and unmistakable lamp-lit terrace is an unmissable stop for art lovers following in the footsteps of Van Gogh.
