Things to do in Antibes

Explore Old Antibes

Start your visit with a stroll through the picturesque streets of Vieil Antibes. Admire the colorful facades of the houses, stroll through the small stores selling local crafts, and enjoy an artisanal ice cream on a sunny terrace.

Visit the Provencal market

To discover the flavors of the region, visit the Provencal market, held every morning (except Mondays) on Place Nationale. You’ll find a wide variety of fresh, local produce: fruit and vegetables, meats, cheeses, olives, spices and, of course, local culinary specialties to sample on the spot or take away.

Discover the Picasso Museum

Located in the superb Château Grimaldi, the Musée Picasso houses, an important collection of works created by the artist during his stay in Antibes in 1946. Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of the famous Spanish painter.

Relax on the beaches of Antibes

Antibes boasts a number of magnificent beaches where you can spend some quality time with family and friends. Plage de la Garoupe, Plage de la Salis and Plage du Ponteil are among the most popular for their fine sand and crystal-clear waters.

Explore Marineland

Located just a few kilometers from Antibes, the Marineland park is a must for marine wildlife enthusiasts. Dolphins, orcas, sharks, turtles and many other marine animals are presented to the public in breathtaking shows and educational activities.


Socca is a local specialty made with chickpea flour, olive oil and water. This wood-fired pancake is usually served hot and peppery. Don’t hesitate to try this savory delicacy at the Antibes Provencal market or in one of the small shops in Old Antibes.


Inspired by Italian pizza, pissaladière is a typical local savory tart made with bread dough topped with candied onions, black olives and anchovy fillets. You can enjoy it as a starter or main course, accompanied by a green salad.


If there’s one dish that’s emblematic of Provençal cuisine, it’s ratatouille! This tasty preparation of simmered vegetables (eggplant, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and onions) flavored with Provencal herbs goes perfectly with grilled fish or fried eggs.

Pan bagnat

This delicious sandwich from Nice is a staple of Mediterranean cuisine. It consists of a round roll topped with crudités (tomatoes, radishes, celery), hard-boiled eggs, tuna and anchovies, generously drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with basil leaves.
