If you’re planning a trip near the French Riviera anytime soon, you need to make some time to go visit the charming city of Antibes.  Whether you’re staying in Cannes or Nice, a day trip to Antibes is incredibly accessible via the train line, and once you arrive in Antibes you can easily walk the town.  Take a stroll down the waterfront and see the multitude of incredible mega yachts, and meander into Old Town to experience Antibes’ charm. From the harbor, Port Vauban, you can see the 16th-century Fort Carre (open year-round except Monday, Christmas, and the first day of January, May and November).
