One of the jewels of the French Riviera, Antibes is a beautiful maritime town with long stretches of pristine white beaches, delicious Mediterranean delicacies and an uninterrupted history dating back 2000 years.
After you step onto Port Vauban, the biggest of its kind in Europe, you’ll get an idea of what Antibes is all about: Superyachts far and wide, under the watchful eye of the historic lighthouse. Available for your perusal are the aforementioned beaches, museums dedicated to Picasso, Absinthe, Napoleon and local history, beautiful public parks that rival the parks elsewhere on the Riviera, and several annual festivals for music, culture and boating.

Besides the museums, there’s also the Marineland zoo. One of the largest marine zoos in France, it’s the only one with aquatic mammals like dolphins and orcas. At the Picasso Museum, you can see one of the largest collections of Cubist art in the world, and the Napoleon Museum showcases 19th century naval vessels and a treasure trove of Napoleonic memorabilia. Roman and Greek architecture and products can be seen at the Archaeology Museum, as well as all over the town itself.
The huge port that services Antibes is also home to the Antibes Yacht Show, a collection of yachts from all shapes and sizes, with manufacturers showing off their best for the world. If you want a luxurious locale on the French Riviera to drop off at on your Mediterranean cruise, Antibes is the place to charter your yacht.
