The French Riviera boasts so much more than gorgeous beaches. Of course, you can spend every single day on the beach and feel like you’ve had a fantastic vacation when visiting Antibes. For the explorer, however, there are also not-to-be-missed excursions and adventures at hand. The private yacht charter traveler who loves a deep dive into history can climb up to Fort Carre. There you will see the 16th-century building used as a prison (for notables including Napoleon Bonaparte during the French Revolution) and learn more about warfare in that era. Fort Carre is located in Antibes Old Town, where you can feast on mussels in white wine and crepes, and buy a tourist trinket or two, or a handful of Provence lavender.
We also recommend following this superyacht insider itinerary for the South of France; it’s a bucket-list trip. The Cap d’Antibes, for example, is a sightseeing spot worth its weight in gold, lined with gardens, fabulous estates, and gorgeous ocean views.
