In February 1888, Van Gogh took the train from Paris to the French Riviera. But the train stopped in Arles, and he disembarked…and immediately fell in love with the city and its particular light.
Meet your private, family-friendly guide in Arles and follow them in the footsteps of the great Post-Impressionist painter. Spend a full day looking back at his period in Provence, from Arles to Saint Rémy de Provence and compare the present with some of his most famous paintings.
Starting with Arles, see where he used to live (The Yellow House), where he painted A Starry Night Over The Rhône as well as many other places that inspired him. Your kid-friendly guide will add many details and fun facts to make it extra special for the young ones.
After this full exploration of Arles, hop aboard a private, fully-equipped minivan and head out to the former mental hospital of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (Saint Paul de Mausole) where Van Gogh once stayed in. Here too, you will be able to compare his paintings with what remains of the mental institution and its gardens.
The pace is perfectly adapted to children. A game booklet will also be given to keep your kids fully engaged and entertained.
