Arles holds one of the remaining Roman colosseums as well as the Théatre Ancien, built in the last part of the 1st century BC. We found a parking lot instantly 200 meters from the colosseum, a virtual miracle. We walked around for just an hour or so, snapped a few photos and had a coffee before returning to the coin box that is the French highway system. Seriously, they stop you about every 2 miles and make you feed something like 4.65 euros into the machine. If you don’t have exact change, the world comes to an end while people back up behind you and honk until the very pissed off attendant comes and yells at you for making her get off her rump and give you change. Very embarassing. Take about 100 euros in coins if you ever plan to drive in France.
