A quaint village located between Cannes and Nice, Antibes is the quintessential French Riviera town. 16th century ramparts and cobblestone streets evoke an old-world vibe, and magnificent Mediterranean beaches make Antibes an ideal rest point. Follow in the footsteps of Picasso and Max Ernst, and wander through Old Town with our Antibes Tote.
Although the restaurants lining the beach have beautiful views, they can be touristy and overpriced. For more local flavor, drop into any of the restaurants in the Old Town - Genco
and Le Village
are particularly good.
SEE: The Marche Provencal
(covered market) in the Old Town is an absolute must-see. Overflowing with fresh produce and cheese the market runs every morning except Monday. Pick up some items for a picnic lunch as you start your day! The Port of Antibes
has become a destination for the luxury yacht set, and is usually crowded with mega-yachts, especially in the summer months. We recommend an invigorating walk around the Cap d'Antibes - it can get chilly if the wind is up so bring a sweater to layer. For Picasso fans, the Picasso museum overlooks the sea in a building where he once lived.
August Antibes Basket Tote!
Our handwoven leather basket tote is ideal for carrying everything you need for a day of sightseeing at the beach with room to spare for fresh fruits, veggies, and cheese from the market. It is lightweight, but big enough to fit all your picnic or beach gear and has three interior pockets to keep all your small items safe and organized.
