A taxi ride from the airport to Antibes will cost between 60 and 70 euros (about $70 to $80). For a cheaper ride, consider hopping on the Vallauris Express 250 bus from the airport.

If you're arriving via train, it'll be a 15-minute ride from Nice or a 5½-hour ride from Paris.

On Foot Walking is the best way to get around Antibes' narrow, cobblestone streets, many of which are pedestrian-only.
