Antibes: My favorite town in the South of France

Marche Provencal 
Walking Trail

Plage La Group
Picasso Museum

Antibes is my favourite town in the French Riviera. Ever since I watched the movie The Killer’s I have dreamt of going to this place. I have researched that they have shot so many scenes in this movie in this small town. I was so happy when I saw several scenes in the beautiful town of Antibes.  You will also find the billionaire’s quay where you will see so many yachts parked here. The Picasso Museum (Chateau Grimaldi).  My advice for you is to do a walking tour of the narrow streets of the old town. Antibes is a very small town you can tour it for a  day. I suggest that you start your tour by shopping at the Marche Provencal. This is where you can find lot of good deals such as cheeses, spices, macaroons, fresh fruits, wines and dried meat. Then you can go to the church and make a wish since it is your first time to go to their church. After that you can visit the Picasso Museum, then have lunch at Le Romantic where you can enjoy fresh seafood dishes.  You can burn all you ate by walking at  Plage de La group where you can enjoy a scenic beach. Finish your day by swimming at Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc where admission is only 75 Euros which includes swimming at their pool and usage of pool side mattress. Antibes is one of the most beautiful and historical place in the Coast of the French Riviera. I think that it is a must see town when you go here. You will enjoy your stay here and it’s truly worth the money.

Marche Provencal- You can shop here every morning which is located in the centre of Antibes at Cours Massena. You can shop so many things such as cheeses, spices, fresh fruits, flowers, wines and dried meat.
