    Antibes is a well known pleasure yacht port with a scenic old town. We arrived from Nice by train and walked around the harbour which was full of private yachts. One of them, the Octopus is supposedly worth $200,000,000 (US). The Old town is partially walled and has a market place in Cours Masséna where we bought fruit, olives, bread and cheese for a lunchtime picnic which we ate on a bench nearby. Antibes deserves a page of its own but as our visit was brief I've included it here.

    ANTIBES on the way to Cannes

    central square in Antibes

    On our way to Cannes by train we stopped for some hours at ANTIBES. It is located 11 km away from CANNES and it’s also a resort town. To be honest, I think that Antibes has more character than Cannes. It was early in the morning and this busy town seemed beautiful to me, especially in the old town where we could stay in some of the sidewalk cafes.

    There are also some nice museums like Picasso’s museum in a castle house, the Peynet’s museum, the Naval Museum of Napoleon (in a 17th century stone fort) and the Archaeology museum. What’s more we walked a lot with no plan (we didnt have any map anyway) so getting lost in some small alleys was just ideal for us. You can also go down to a beautiful port with countless sailboats.

    Don’t miss the Juan-les-Pins, in ourdays part of Antibes that usually the tourists go for clubbing and swimming.

    Try to visit Antibes, just a short drive from Nice. Park and walk around, there are several places within close proximity to see. The Picasso museum is there, and hundreds of sailboats at port make beautiful pictures. Lots of shops and restaurants to browse in and eat at.

    Just outside of Nice you will see these apartment buidlings. I don't know much about them except noticing them on my way to Cannes.
