THE CITY AND THE CLIMATE
Antibes is a charming city on the French Riviera that gives you a view of the sea and the mountains at the same time. Antibes lies halfway between Nice and Cannes, and is probably the only city on the French Riviera that simultaneously provides a view of Nice, Alpes-Maritimes, and of course the azure sea. Centuries ago the city was founded by the Greeks, but it quickly passed into the hands of the Romans. Later, it was often attacked and plundered by pirates.
Today the main attractions in Antibes are the charming Old Town with its narrow streets and narrow buildings, and its many beaches for lovers of swimming and sunbathing. In Antibes and the surrounding area you will find as many as 48 beaches, stretching along the coast for a total of 25 km!
The weather in Antibes is also one of the main reasons to visit the French Riviera. Here the sun shines on most days of the year, and rain falls only for a few days in autumn and winter. Summer temperatures oscillate around 30 degrees Celsius (86°F) during the day, while at night they are only slightly lower. July usually has the highest humidity, and the summer season runs from May through to the end of September.
