School Group Trips:French Language and Culture in Antibes

Antibes has a rich historic and architectural past. The town has been well preserved and renovated and its history is evident on a stroll round its narrow streets and avenues. Ancient squares, medieval streets, typical provençal houses and pine trees all add to the picturesque charm of this location. The ancient Fort Carré stands guard over the town, giving views along the coast to Nice.
