Running of the Bulls, South of France Style
The first stop of our fun Uniworld River Cruise on the Rhône River was in the town of Arles.
We were there on what the French call Easter Monday which also coincided with the Feria d’ Arles.
“The Easter Feria marks the start of the French bullfighting season and attracts 500,000 visitors of which 50,000 aficionados go to the bullfights held in the arena. But, above all, it is an excuse to party and the city is brought alive with Spanish rhythm! Encierros, bodegas, music in the streets, come and experience a Feria like no other.” (via Arles Tourism)
