Antibes - Fort VaubanHistoric Town :
For a long time Antibes was the only large town between Marseille and Italy. It was the only town on the coast to be protected by ramparts, and thus it has managed to conserve historic monuments from each period in its heritage. The Chateau, bastion and towers have today been transformed into a magnificent Modern Art Museum, History and Archeology Museum and museum of traditional crafts and local culture.

Most of the treasures can be found in the historic town center. It's better to visit this part on foot taking in it's particular atmosphere, meander between pretty squares and it's narrow streets... Let yourself be guided by the charm of the craft workshops where crafts persons work, often leaving the doors of their workshops open for all to see, or by the boutiques with their sun-faded facades or by the beautiful odours of simmering dishes wafting from the open windows...
