Day Trip from Nimes: Avignon or Arles?

Would love to hear thoughts and opinions, please -- -- if there was time for only one day trip from Nimes, would you go to Avignon or Arles, and why? Thanks!

I'd go to Arles because you get to see the wonderful amphitheater not unlike its Nimes counterpart, 60 arches in its two remaining levels and the special musee Arleten
situated in a 16th century palace.Its theme is the arles life style over the centuries, and founded by the famous provencal poet, Mistral,

p.s.,it's also closer to Nimes, too bad you can't visit both because they are so different in atmasphere and much to see in Avignon.

Thanks for the quick replies! I wonder if I could do both in one long day....train from Nimes to Arles, to Avignon and back to Nimes? I'll have to check the DB website.

Nimes to Arles, could arrive early, like 8:09.....5 hrs there, then to Avignon at 13:15, 6 hours there, leave for Nimes 19:03.....would that be enough time in each to get a good "taste" of each town?

I would try to do both, as each has its own offerings. I think 5 and 6 hours in each would make for a long, but good, day.
