The ancient walled town of Antibes is one of the liveliest and prettiest on the French Riviera, with a relaxed beachy feel, a thriving superyacht port and a gorgeous old town of narrow cobbled streets, markets and cafes.
Famous for being home to the Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, Antibes certainly saw its fair share of glitz, glamour and a touch of the avant-garde though the 20th century. For those who love art, and for those who love Picasso in particular, there could be no better place than Antibes and the French Riviera to trace the master’s footsteps, and find the masterpieces and scandals he left in his wake.
Lying to the east of Cannes, it offers a calmer, more traditional place to spend some time. It has a wonderful old town centre with a covered market and plenty of little cafes where you can contemplate the world as it drifts by.
