The popular seaside town of Antibes is in the heart of the Côte d’Azur. It has everything to offer the tourist, including culture, scenery, beaches and bays and is ideal for a long weekend, a good holiday or a base for exploring the French Riviera.
The historic old town (Vieil Antibes) nestles within the ramparts and has retained much of its original character with quaint cobbled streets, a Provencal market, lots of restaurants, street cafes and bars. Outside of the Old Town walls is the modern city of Antibes which has all the amenities of a modern town.
Antibes has a vibrant yachting community and hosts an annual regatta and yatch show. Port Vauban is Europe’s largest yacht marina and hosts a gathering of the world’s super yachts. However, in contrast, the western end of the port, near the old town, is where the fishing boats can be found.
