Across the Bay of Angels from Nice lies the old port town of Antibes, which is one of the most unique places along the French Riviera.
Much of its charm lies in Antibes little harbour, which is filled with fishing boats and pleasure yachts, and Antibes old town, with its quaint buildings and marketplaces full of flowers.
Unlike some of the bigger towns along the coast, Antibes has retained much of its original lifestyle as a fishing village. It is quiet and peaceful, and full of Mediterranean ambiance set against a backdrop of Roman artefacts.
Just next door, in stark contrast to Antibes, lies the ultra-rich enclave of Cap d'Antibes and the nightlife of Juan les Pins.
