Antibes is a charming port town just a 20 minute train ride to the west of Nice. There are some remarkable sandy beaches to spend the day on relaxing and sunbathing, our favourite is Plage de la Gravette near the port.
Take the direct train from Nice Ville train station.
Local guide tips
Visit the medieval market in the centre of the old town where you’ll find local Provencal products and take a walk along the village walls to enjoy the views of the bay.
Picasso lived in Antibes, and you can visit the museum in the village which is dedicated to the art he produced whilst staying there.
You will find lots of great bars and restaurants in Antibes and the village becomes very busy during the evening time. A great place to eat dinner and have drink at the end of the day is The Hop Store Pub
