We went there just because we've bought a Arles pass, and can visit it for no extra cost. Maybe I don't have any expectation for this place, the result comes out are pleasantly surprised. The lighting for this underground arcade is very dark, and with no sound. You can speak to hear the echo. The overall feeling for visiting this... 更多
Of all the sights that you do not need to spend time or money on, this one heads the list. When you first descend into the crypt you think “this could be interesting”. If all you want to see are large columns in a dark dungeon area, then you will be excited. This would make a great Halloween haunt, but... 更多
Yes, it's surprising to see the "underground history" of this city, but... once you go through the first 'street', you've seen it all. But: you have to do this!!!

Beneath the Hotel de Ville, the crypoportiques are Roman streets of Arles. Fascinating and atmospheric, as well as an escape from the heat of the summer for half an hour or so. We visited using a pass giving access to a number of historic buildings and museums in Arles.
