Go to the Cap d'Antibes! 

You can't visit Antibes without going to the Cap d'Antibes! The two go hand in hand and sometimes you hear more about the Cap than the town itself. The place is so famous because it's absolutely incredible !

The Cap d'Antibes is actually a peninsula of 3.7km². You will love to walk in a wild setting bordered by cliffs and creeks. You will be able to choose between several hiking trails like the famous coastal path. If you prefer to enjoy the landscape from the sea, you can opt for a kayak or paddle session! 

Whatever your choice, you will enjoy discovering the wild fauna and flora, the typical villas built in the 19th century as well as the various activities between land and sea! 

What to do in Antibes? Between culture and relaxation! 

Antibes is a lively town with many activities. Whether you come with your family, friends, partner or even solo, you will find something interesting to do. 

- If you like to discover the heritage and history of a city, go and discover the museums of Antibes. You can visit the Picasso museum in the famous Grimaldi castle. A museum to be seen again and again, as it is part of the town history !

The typical Mediterranean lifestyle

Antibes is one of those towns that exudes joy, good humour and where you feel good. It represents the Mediterranean life by its architecture, its traditions, its heritage but also by its art of living. And what would a Mediterranean city be without its port? As the largest marina in Europe, the port of Antibes is at the heart of the city's exchanges and activities. It is therefore an integral part of the city of Antibes and reminds us how cosmopolitan and world-renowned the city is for its attractiveness. It is also very pleasant to stroll along the quays of the Vauban port and enjoy the view of the ramparts, and even the Fort Carré! (an ancient fortress located on the heights of Antibes that you can visit!) 

The Mediterranean food is also worth a visit during a stay on the French Riviera. And nothing better than Antibes to discover it! You'll love having lunch on the terrace in the old town and strolling at dusk to listen to jazz in the heart of the pine forest. Yes, the old town of Antibes is also that: music resounding in the small streets, squares all more beautiful than the others and fabulous spots to stop for a drink. There are also many restaurants in Antibes where you can taste the local gastronomy. The Provençal market will allow you to discover the good products of the region such as charcuterie or cheese for example. A discovery that will not make you regret this morning stroll!
