Good to see that the gardens have been retained. And changed monthly we were told? Very pretty. Plenty of visitors so it’s a little crowded. Some nice shops inside.

We missed the entrance, which is on the east side. Once inside you will find a small yard with a fountain in the middle. You also will find a couple of moderately-priced souvenir shops to spend a few Euros in.

Like most of the attractions in Arles, this is very central and definitely worth a quick look, although how long you linger may depend on whether/what exhibitions are being shown there. Very pretty little courtyard garden! Also has a cafe and various touristy gift shops...More

Standing in the former hospital where Van Gogh stayed after his tragic ear amputation places you in the time and place of this great but tragic figure. The garden inside the walls of the hospital is basically the same as the Van Gogh paintings that...More

These gardens make you feel some of the wonder that Van Gogh experienced. A great place for a photo op, a refreshment break and a chance to buy some souvenirs. Don't miss this!

Gardens and buildings as they were when Van Gogh stayed and painted here; apart from the trees which have grown somewhat! It would have been extra special to have been able to view the garden from the balcony, Vincent’s vantage point, but this was closed...More

Laden with tourists, this place is still an enjoyable place to consider Vincent Van Gogh's troubles near the end of his life. He painted this courtyard in one of his famous paintings.

Interesting former hospital where Van Gogh stayed following his infamous ear-severing outbursts. The interior courtyard, which features a pleasant flower garden, contrasts nicely with the yellow walls of the buildings themselves. There’s a little more hustle and bustle nowadays, but it’s still cool to look...More

Although it had a pretty garden, it was hardly worth visiting. The name "van Gogh" attracts visitors, but there is really nothing to see that is related to Van Gogh, and little to see there generally.
