Antibes is Nicer

It had been several years since we had taken a holiday in Antibes, so we took a week vacation to return to one of our favorite places in Europe.

Many say the Nice is nice; and most tourists tend to use Nice as their travel hub for the French Riviera. But for us Antibes is nicer...indeed, the nicest!

We drove down from Brussels on Saturday, 20 July 1985 and returned home on Sunday, 28 July 1985.

We stayed at our favorite hotel, the Royal, right across from our favorite beach, and at the edge of the old town.

Our routine for the week was to spend the mornings on the beach. Then after lunch we would drive to Cannes, Monte Carlo, and other coastal town, or St Paul de Vence, Grasse, and other hilltop towns.

In the evenings we would walk around the old town of Antibes and have dinner at a sidewalk cafe or restaurant.

I will let the photos speak for themselves as to why we enjoy Antibes so much.
