A thriving Riviera town, Antibes began its existence as the Greek trading post of Antipolis. Today, smart shops, a luxury marina and historic quarter ringed by ramparts attract many visitors. Open-air markets specialise in locally grown cut flowers. The Musée Picasso in Château Grimaldi contains works by 20th-century artists. Cap d’Antibes is a lush and beautiful enclave of the super-rich, studded with luxury villas and hotels.
