[Arles, France]

Situated on the Rhône River, ancient Arles, France, was an important Phoenician trading port when it was much closer to the Mediterranean coast.  Moreover, Arles may have acted as a staging area for traffic along the river; indeed, this 505-mile European route was very important to the ancient Greeks, who brought goods and ideas to the Celtic tribes on the upper Rhône.
