    Limited Parking

    by Albernfrau Written Nov 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We just stayed in Antibes in a small hotel/b&b which was wonderful but like many hotels/b&bs had limited parking so we just parked on the street which was fine. We managed to usually find parking not too far away and we didn't mind a little walking anyways. Make sure you get a small rental car as ours was too big which made parking an even bigger challenge.

    Antibes Railway Station

    The main railway station at Antibes, in its terracotta livery, is the main way in and out of the city. It is five to ten minutes walk away from the old town and the harbour, being on the edge of the "modern" commercial centre.

    Trains run fairly frequently (subject to the vagaries of timetables noted below) east from here to Nice, Monaco and Ventimiglia, and west to Juan le Pins, Cannes, St Raphael and ultimately Marseilles St Charles.

    French railway timetables are a law unto themselves and defy any expectation of "regular service". Forget it. You will find two in short succession and nothing for an hour, then a TGV comes along which you are technically not allowed to travel without a reservation, which you don't need because the train is by now empty, but its a further half hour for a regular TER service.

    Most people will chance it on the TGV, but its perhaps wise to stand in the corridor in the event inspectors pounce - no-one can accuse you of occupying a seat without the required reservation.

    I prefer to avoid the railways late at night on this stretch of the Riviera - the smaller stations are not staffed and I have found myself the only person in two or three carriages. Newspapers here have reported incidents on board late night trains and I think there is a question over personal safety. However make your own judgement.

    Getting there from the UK

    Alais alais from Calais


    Getting to Cannes Nice and Antibes
    From the UK fares are much of a muchness and vary considerably
    according to festivals and demand . . .
    By air, British Airways are expensive but there are often cheap deals.
    British Midland is good, as well as EasyJet from Gatwick and Luton or Stanstead.

    Euro Rail is useful if you want to take your car to the south but don't want to drive that
    distance . . . Petrol and motorway tolls add up in any case. The journey is overnight from Dover or Ashford. Telephone 0990 848848 and be prepared to wait for them to attend to you . . . You can also buy TGV tickets from them. If you take the overnight sleeper train, make sure that you take a padlock or wire to secure the cabin door.

    Antibes train station

    I took a sleeper train from Antibes to Port Bou, it was magical. I stayed awake the whole trip admiring the beautiful unspoiled coast of France at night. The shimmering stars were flickering and reflecting on the dark vast ocean and the mountains were raised in salutation for beauty of mother nature.

    Train from and to Nice - Antibes

    My hotel being in Nice, I went to Antibes for a day. Very easy considering there're many trains leaving from Nice to Antibes and it only takes about 15 minutes.

    From the Gare SNCF it's about 10 minutes walk to the old town (Vieux ville d'Antibes) and takes you via the port with it's impressive yachts.

    Antibes bus station

    Gare Routiere, Antibes

    The local bus service is ideal to get you around the immediate area, say to access the furthest point of Cap d'Antibes, and the outer villages and suburbs.

    The Cap d'Antibes, with its megastar hotel Eden Roc, and the Napoleonic and Naval museums are only a short bus ride away. Despite sharing the name "Antibes" they are some considerable distance.

  • Good Pair of Shoes

    by ski_bum Written Jul 24, 2004

    The best way to see Antibes is by foot. There is so much too see that there is no need for a transport. Many small alleys with unique stores and restaurants are only accessible by walking. So put on a trusty pair of shoe.

    Scooter or car

    Unfortunately the best way to travel around Antibes is to have its own car : the public transportation system is very limited : If you want to go to the other cities around (Cannes, Nice, monaco), you can catch a train but if you want to visit the smaller places, You've got to have your car or own transport.
