Nestled between Nice and Cannes in the French Riveria, Antibes is a small town awash with history and music.
Best known for its old town, Antibes is filled with cobblestone streets and quaint shops decorated with local art. Get lost among the stone buildings and public fountains, or head to the cathedral, which has a stunning interior blending blues, golds and peach colors. Close by is also an outdoor market, where travelers have a pick of fresh and dried local produce.
Just on the outskirts of the town, 16th-century Fort Carré sits on the waterfront and is formed in the shape of a star. Take a step back in time and explore the winding paths while looking out onto the sea of yachts below. Finding the fort can be a little tricky, so it’s best to book with a guide beforehand.
Antibes is popular with travelers during the summer months when temperatures hit the low 80s.
