Fodor's Review

Stand on the site of Van Gogh's residence in Arles—the now-famous Maison Jaune (Yellow House), destroyed by bombs in 1944. The artist may have set up his easel on the Quais du Rhône, just off Place Lamartine, to capture the view that he transformed into his legendary Starry Night. Eight other sites are included on the city's "Arles and Vincent van Gogh" (www.arlestourisme.com), linking sight to canvas, including Place du Forum; the Trinquetaille bridge; Rue Mireille; the Summer Garden on Boulevard des Lices; and the road along the Arles à Bouc canal.
