Diamond of the French Riviera

The prosperous French Riviera resort town of Antibes is a popular summer destination featuring tons of beaches to suit couples, families, and any type of lifestyle, along with dozens, if not hundreds of cafes, bars, and salons de thé (tea) along the Mediterranean coast.
On the 27th (Sun), head off the coast to Île Sainte-Marguerite, then visit Le Suquet, then explore the world behind art at Musee Picasso, and finally make a trip to Le Nomade. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the extensive heritage of Le Sentier du Littoral, Cap d'Antibes and then take a peaceful walk through Lérins Islands.
