Days 11-12

Cap d'Antibes has been an exclusive playground for the glittery rich since the 19th century. Everyone from the Duchess of Windsor to F. Scott Fitzgerald and Madonna have come here. Picasso once called Antibes home, and it remains one of the prettiest medieval towns along the Med. Stroll through its winding streets and admire the super yachts docked in the harbor.
