PHP subtracting dates

Hi experts,

I have 2 dates (arrival and departure). I want to work up the number of nights stayed based on those 2 dates. How can I achieve this. So far I have....

 $Arrival_Date = date("Y-m-d", strtotime($Arrival_Date));
$Departure_Date = date("Y-m-d", strtotime($Departure_Date));

$NoNights = $Departure_Date - $Arrival_Date;

But this returns zero.

Many Thanks,
Dean

date() returns a string, not a number (neither a date).

what about:
$Arrival_Date = strtotime($Arrival_Date);
$Departure_Date = strtotime($Departure_Date);

$NoNights = $Departure_Date - $Arrival_Date;
