Things to do in Antibes
Overlooking the city of Antibes, you will find Le Fort Carré
, a military fort built under the reign of Henry II in the 16th century. Located on the peninsula of Saint-Roch, Fort Carré is built on a rock 26 meters above sea level. The fort opened to the public in 1998 and offers a beautiful panoramic view of the sea and the old town.
At the foot of Fort Carré is Port Vauban
, one of the most important marinas in Europe with its Quai des Milliardaires
hosting the most beautiful yachts in the world.
The Picasso museum
is situated in the seaside Château Grimaldi in the old town of Antibes. It was built upon the foundations of the ancient Greek town of Antipolis. The museum enjoys a superb location overlooking the Mediterranean Sea with marvellous views from the terrace where a few sculptures are exhibited. Inside the museum contains a number of paintings, drawings and ceramics. The museum, which opened in 1966, claims to be the first museum dedicated to the artist while he was still alive. Picasso produced a number of works during the summer of 1966 when he lived in Château Grimaldi – works that he later donated to the museum. Some of the most famous are La Joie de Vivre and La Chèvre. The collection has since been extended with donations. Although the collection is small the museum is definitively worth a visit for its unique collection, sculptures and beautiful setting.
