Antibes is an ancient port first settled by Greeks during the 5th century BCE due to its protected harbor area. It is famous as a yacht haven and for its local gardens and museums. Between Cannes and Nice, Antibes is a lovely place for small to medium sized cruise ships to stop, since guests can choose to stay in the picturesque town or travel to the larger cities nearby. Antibes' harbor, Port Vauban, is the largest yacht marina in Europe and can accommodate yachts up to 100 meters in length. Fort Carre, which overlooks the harbor, is surrounded by a park and offers tours of the 16th century fortress. The Picasso Museum is located in the Chateau Grimaldi and features works from the period when the artist lived in Antibes, including paintings, drawings, along with many ceramics and several tapestries. There are also small museums dedicated to Napoleon, archaeology and local culture. An impressive garden park, Exflora Park, includes sections of typical Provencal foliage and an Islamic section featuring Moroccan style plantings. West of Antibes is cosmopolitan Cannes, home of the Film Festival and location of the popular urban beach, La Croisette. Nice is the capital of the region and the cultural and artistic center, with great museums and the scenic Promenade des Anglais. Inland from Antibes are the world's perfume capital at Grasse and the 14th century hilltop village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Also nearby is the small town of Biot, famous for its local crafts and shops.
