This box is intended to unify the two things that Arles (http://www.tourisme.ville-arles.fr/UK/) is most famous for: Roman ruins and Vincent Van Gogh.
Find the café ostensibly portrayed in Vincent’s painting (clue below if you’re stumped). Across from it is a sign describing two of the city’s many Roman ruins. Go to the one with the longer name. There will be a small entrance fee (included if you bought the Museum/Monument pass). Go in and descend the stairs. Walk straight forward (ignore the path that goes to the right) along the right wall (under the arcade, away from the lights). Walk two-thirds of the way along the hall until you notice various ruins piled up against the right wall. First you will see a large rectangular carved piece, then two large stones, then a number of wheels. At the base, between the rectangular piece and the first large stone, is the letterbox. You will have to bring it into the light to read, but be discreet, especially when you re-hide it. A flashlight might help you out, but the letterbox is visible without one.
