Antibes Travel Guide: 196 reviews and 491 photos


Antibes is one of the most beautiful and romantic towns on the Cote d'Azur. The town of Antibes was founded by the Greeks as Antipolis. Long-time resident Graham Greene said it was the only town on the Côte that hadn't lost its soul. And he is absolutely right. Antibes has one of the finest markets on the coast and the best Picasso collection in its ancient seafront castle.

Pros and Cons

    Charming town indeed! Narrow streets of old town and colourful markets - I just love them! I see you had a lot of fun in Marineland! :) It sounds quite similar to the very fascinating Aquarium in Lisbon. Wonderful! :)

    Looks like a nice place to spend a holiday. The crepes sound tempting too.

    One of the places in France I've always wanted to visit. Those crepes alone would get me there!

    Marineland looks fantastic. I have a friend who works in one in Australia, he thinks its the best job in the world.
