Antibes is a historical town on the Mediterranean which main attractions are the beautiful beaches in the vicinity. For a long time, Antibes fell short of other seaside resorts on the French Riviera. For many artists this was the reason to spend a shorter or longer time in this town. Unfortunately, Antibes has also been swept along in the continuous tourist development of the Côte d’Azur. The only thing reminding us of the artistic past of Antibes is the Picasso Museum.
Antibes-Juan les Pins has almost 80,000 inhabitants.
The town is located in the south of France on the Mediterranean near the Cap d'Antibes, a peninsula separating the Baie de Cannes from the Baie des Anges. Cannes is situated 10 kilometers west of Antibes while Nice lies 20 kilometers northeast of town.
In addition to Antibes-Juan les Pins being a shopping city, tourism forms an important pillar of local economy. It's also a center for the development of high-grade technology. The business park Sophia Antipolis is sometimes called the French version of Silicon Valley. The companies here employ over 30,000 people.
Aéroport Nice Côte d’Azur is situated 15 kilometers north-east of Antibes. The airport is easily reachable by rental car via Route Nationale 98 or freeway A8.
Antibes has excellent public bus transport. The 31 lines that run from the Gare Routière (bus station) on Place General de Gaulle serve destinations both inside and outside the city.
Especially during summer months it's extremely busy in Antibes. It's then difficult to find a free parking place for your rental car in the street. Fortunately there are several parking garages in Antibes, for example near the train station. Their locations are signposted.
There's no shortage of accommodation in this popular seaside resort. Most accommodations are holiday hotels and resorts but in the old city center you can also find typical French family hotels. If you want to visit Antibes in the summer months we recommend booking your accommodation well in advance.
