Incredible town! Ensure you make a trip to Marineland Antibes for a real day out! Marineland is home to killer whales, dolphins, sea lion, penguins, polar bears and many more animals. Also, catch the train down to Cannes or over to Monaco. Relax on Cannes beach and do a spot of shopping, or take a guided tour around Monaco, going through the famous tunnel used in the Formula 1 racing.
Make sure and visit the pope's palace, and the obelisque de arles (in the place de la republic). Loved the architecture and all the quirky things about this city. The people-watching is fantastic!!
