Antibes is a pretty seaside town just up the coast from Cannes. We’ve been a few times for food but never properly strayed away from the beach.
So we decided it was time to tick it off the list and explore.We got our cultural fix from the a Picasso museum. Having got away with pretending we were a ‘large family’, I mean we practically are, we spent an hour or so having a wander around the gallery.I’ve been to the Picasso museum in Malaga, where Pablo was born, so it was quite nice to compare. This museum certainly has the edge when it comes to the views..
My favourite exhibition was a series of black and white photos taken by a Polish photographer, Michel Sima, of Picasso in his workshop the Autumn/Summer of 1946. I find ‘behind the scenes’ photos and stories so fascinating, sometimes even more so than the art work itself.
The views from the museum really were incredible. So I took far too many pictures..Realising everyone else had gone, we went outside to find them.Feeling all cultured we went in search for tea and coffee. Okay, so this is for someone in particular and my new found, maybe not love, but liking of motorbikes.
We took our time just wandering in and out of shops and enjoying the pretty streets.
I absolutely love French towns. The cobbled streets, the coloured wooden shutters, and the beautiful window flowers mean you can just wander for hours, totally immersed. Such a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
