Vue d'Antibes sur la côte

Antibes and its old walled city


Antibes is situated between Nice and Cannes, a popular seaside resort on the French Riviera; it is also a city of history. For a long time it was even the only major city between Marseille and Italy. Of this glorious past, it has preserved a rich heritage including its ramparts. Sheltered by the surrounding stone walls, the old town of Antibes can be visited by foot, strolling amongst the narrow streets that lead to pretty squares lined with artisan workshops, booksellers and restaurants, etc.
