With its boat-bedecked harbour, 16th century ramparts and cobbled streets, Antibes is the perfect alternative to the glitz and glamour of Monte Carlo. This enchanting, fortified town was founded by the Greeks over 2000 years ago as Antipolis, but changed rule many times before becoming commonly known as Antibes.
Pass by the harbour and through the city walls to enter the old town, known as Vieil Antibes. Here, you will begin a guided walking tour of the ramparts and flower lined streets. Your path will present an abundance of photograph opportunities before arriving at the Provencal Market area.
Make the most of some free time by enjoying a refreshing drink or snack in one of the many cafés or head off to explore some of the town’s many hidden treasures.
The foot of the ramparts is home to a small sandy beach, test the temperature and maybe take a dip, or discover Antibes’ links to Pablo Picasso. Chateau Grimaldi was Picasso’s home for six months and became the world’s first Museum to be dedicated to the artist.
