Café Van Gogh information
The Roman place du Forum, shaded by outstretched plane trees, turns into a giant dining table at lunch and dinner during summer. It's also where you'll find Café la Nuit, thought to be the subject of van Gogh's Café Terrace at Night (1888), painted bright yellow to re-create Vincent's depiction of night-time lights.
