Take a tour of Arles Amphitheatre in Arles, France – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. In the midst of the small town of Arles, France is an unexpected taste of Rome. The amphitheater has been a central part of the town for over 2000 years. In Roman times it was the scene of gladiator battles, races, and other sporting events. In the Medieval Ages, the amphitheater became a fortress and a small town grew within it. In the early 1800s, this amazing and ancient structure was restored to its former state. The amphitheater is a marvel of antiquity well worth the trip.
