ANTIBES is a Mediterranean resort in southeastern France, on the Côte d'Azur between Cannes and Nice.
This classic French Riviera resort town has 23 kilometers of coastline overlooking the serene blue Mediterranean Sea. There are more than a dozen public beaches on the Cap d'Antibes and in Juan-les-Pins-both areas are considered part of the Antibes community.
Besides the beautiful natural surroundings and stunning sea views, visitors may enjoy visiting the Old Town of Antibes. Located on the Baie des Anges (Bay of Angels), the Old Town of Antibes is an inviting place to wander at a leisurely pace. The narrow, winding cobblestone streets are filled with little boutiques, gourmet food shops, cafés, restaurants and a bustling town market.
In the heart of the Old Town is situated the Notre-Dame-de-la-Platea Cathedral, which is the largest church in Antibes.
In Antibes is also located the renowned Picasso Museum / Musée Picasso /.
The museum occupies the Château Grimaldi, an impressive stone castle with views of the sea. The museum offers a unique insight into the work produced by Picasso while he lived on the Côte d'Azur.
Another interesting museum in Antibes is Musée Peynet. Founded in 1995, the museum is dedicated to the cartoonist Raymond Peynet's work. The museum displays a collection of whimsical sculptures, humorous drawings, and comic strips.
If you want to head to the beach and relax in the sunshine, Plage du Ponteil is a beautiful place with clear waters and fine sand.
