WHAT TO DO ANTIBES
Following the creation of Antibes Free Walking Tours, our company needed to evolve as new tours were on high demand, this is why I launched This new website. Many of our visitors were always asking “What should we do while on holiday in Antibes?!”
Therefore, it was making total sense to create this platform where you’ll find all the tours that we provide in Antibes. In addition, a blog is coming soon covering what “else” to do in Antibes.
Joining one of our tours is the best way to discover all of what Antibes has to offer. However, we will also provide further tips to make the most of your stay in our fantastic seaside village!
Meanwhile, if you have time and do feel like adventuring outside of Antibes, we highly recommend you to have a look on our new reference-to-be website www.whattodoriviera.com which covers the all french riviera!

Visiting Antibes has never been so accessible. Not only do we provide a range of guided tours through town but we also make sure that you feel like a local after. On the other hand, we recommend places, hotels, restaurants, rentals, events and other activities…
Firstly, here’s a quick intro on the quaint, historical seaside village of Antibes. Located half way between the big Nice and the bling bling Cannes, Antibes is the third city in the area after Nice and Cannes. Antibes has a unique charm that has a lot to offer and is often the favourite area to visit.
Antibes has a rich history going back as far as 5 centuries B.C. For instance, many artists absolutely fall in love with its beauty and choose to reside here or used it as their holiday destination. Antibes has a very artistic vibe with many workshops, street art and expos as well as the incredible Picasso Museum where he stayed and get inspired.
Walking through narrow streets will help you travel back in time and enjoy the relaxing, beautiful atmosphere. Unlike no other.
And if you are also curious about the rich and famous, Antibes holds many stories and secrets to hear. From our port Vauban and its billionaire wharf to the Cap d’Antibes being one of the most expensive real estate in the area, many stars come for their summer holiday or own properties here. Especially with our port being the biggest leasure port in Europe, you will find floating palaces stopping by and it’s always unbelievable to see.
In conclusion, From traditions and art to fancy and exclusive, Antibes has much to offer for all walks of life. I guarantee that you’ll have a ball with our friendly guides and a bit of french flair!

I’m Lucica, Italian born but been living in Antibes for many years where we had a family house for a long long time.
My experience with travel and exploring around started when I was really little with my family. My mum is a teacher and pass me the love for the literature, my father love art and paintings and he taught me how to recognize the different styles and to appreciate them.
I lived in different country and I worked on cruise ships, that gave me the possibility to travel and meet lot of different people and culture. Being a tour guide for many years, I’ve been touring people in many countries and places and i’m now ready to share my love with the South of France with you all!

Why you should join me on a tour?
Travelling, discover new things and places is my passion, when I walk around often I stop and go on about the beauty that surrounds me. During the tours, I always try to transmit those emotions through a trip from past to present, from art and architecture to literature and cinema, showing the main attraction but as well the less common places but really unique.
People tell me that the way I tell the story and little anecdotes, I convey all my passion for my work, showing our wonderful French Riviera through my eyes.
