Shopping in Antibes
The town of Antibes is a perfect, picture-postcard seaside resort hugging the shores of the Mediterranean between Nice and Cannes. 16th-century ramparts cluster around the old town of narrow cobbled streets, the flower and vegetable market and the old port. Antibes grew from the ancient Greek trading port of Antipolis, was heavily fortified by Vauban in the 17th century and in the 20th century became the favorite town for, among many other artists and writers, Picasso, Nicolas de Staël and Max Ernst and the novelist, Graham Greene.
There are numerous commercial centres with shops and services available alongside a supermarket. The Centres Commerciaux differ from shopping malls in that they generally don't have shops selling music and technology goods and home furnishings. However most have a pharmacy (chemist), florist, dry cleaners, key-cutters and shoe repairs, a tobacconist and news-stand, a booking office for show tickets, opticians and a café/restaurant.
The large Centre Commercial Carrefour in Antibes has a Carrefour supermarket as well as shops and services including a hairdresser, a chemist, fashion shops, shoe shops, photo development, dry cleaners, key-cutters and shoe repairs, florists, opticians, cafés and restaurants, and a petrol station.
