Antibes - Lesser Known French Riviera, Part 1

France, Antibes Guide (B): Antibes - Lesser Known French Riviera, Part 1

A few months ago we had a chance to visit the famous all over the world French Riviera. I usually prefer way more off the beaten path places (like my favorite Balkans or Caucasus) but the winter sale of airplane tickets to Nice (I'll also share my thoughts on Nice soon) was so tempting that only a fool wouldn't have taken advantage of it. Also, the winter was coming to an end and the only way to escape the cold, grey and gloomy landscapes of Northern Europe was to head south. During the few days along the French Riviera, we decided to skip the most popular cities - Cannes and St. Tropez and look for something more quiet, local and charming. We came across the little, beautiful towns of Antibes and Eze. In this part I'll show you Antibes and in the second, the magnificent Eze - a hill town which was my favorite in the entire French Riviera.

Although the French Riviera is pretty expensive, the public transport is just amazing and affordable. There are multipe buses and trains daily that run from the center of the region - Nice, both south towards Cannes and north to Monaco. To reach Antibes, you have to head south. The bus 200 costs less than 2 EUR/2.50 USD! The journey takes over 1 hour. If you want to save time, you can catch a train which is a bit more expensive. ......
