Antibes is the quintessential French Riviera city. This beautiful and underrated gem has a charming old town with narrow alleys leading to lively restaurants and bountiful outdoor markets. The clear turquoise waters are lined by white sandy beaches to frolic on.
The city also has an ample dose of that jet set glamour, with flamboyantly luxurious yachts often making stops in the city’s marina. Earlier this year, during the Cannes Film Festival, Charlize Theron even chose the charm of Antibes instead of it’s neighboring Cannes, and I don’t question her choice – it doesn’t get any better than this!
