A relaxing one-hour drive will bring you to Arles, a former major Roman city dating back to the 7th century BC that contains many important monuments which you will discover on your walk: the theater, the amphitheatre, the forum, and more. You will also visit the beautiful Saint Trophime church, a reminder that Arles was also an important religious center during the middle ages.

Arles is also closely associated with the name Vincent Van Gogh, who arrived there in 1888 and completed nearly 300 paintings during his stay, including "Evening Café," "Hospital Garden," and "the Bridge Langlois." You will get a chance to view the sites of many of his most famous paintings. It was also here that he cut off a piece of his ear on the evening of the 24th of December, 1888.

After some free time and lunch (on your own), you and your guide will head back to the car, where you will drive through the landscape of the Alpilles, complete with vines and olive trees, to one of the numerous olive estates. End your day with an olive oil tasting, before heading back to Sete.
