Of all the seaside towns of the French Riviera, Antibes is the most instantly recognisable thanks to its iconic skyline made up of a lovely blend of old buildings sitting on the high ramparts above the sea, dominated by the tower of the Picasso Museum. The curve of Port Vauban, the largest marina in Europe, is home to huge white super yachts while the old fort (Fort Carré) stands defiant on the far side. Antibes offers a calmer, more traditional vibe than Cannes, its popular neighbouring town to the West, with its neatly woven haven of pretty cafes, bars, ice cream shops and boutiques. Antibes also boasts its own sandy beaches that lead to the famous Cap d'Antibes.
