Walking from Cap D'Antibes to Viel Antibes?

Hi,

I have not been to Antibes in years. I will be staying in the Cap d'Antibes and want to know if I can easily walk to Viel Antibes and/or the Fort Carre area. If it's not walkable, is traveling by bus fairly easy?

Many thanks!

Hi, thanks so much for responding. We are planning to stay at the Cap d'Antibes Beach Hotel (we want some peace and quiet, so I'm not worried about being farther away from things) - but I would like to explore Viel Antibes for a day. A 20-30 minute walk wouldn't be an issue for us, but if it's longer or not a pedestrian-friendly walk, I'd rather take a bus. I'm more concerned its not going to be pedestrian-friendly. Thanks!

It's a pretty good walk....probably 45 minutes at least. I believe it is the #2 bus that does the route.

I agree that it would be about 45 mins walk to the old town

It will be 10-15 mins walk to bus stop Empel on the number 2 route

timetable here

If traveling by train for day trips etc you would be best using juan les pins station - approx 20 mins walk

And the 13 bus goes from the Porte Marine ( Marine gate of the Old town beside the port ) to Fort Carre. The No.2 goes from the Bus station to Eden Roc but note there is no correspondence between the two bus routes- it is about 20 minutes walk from the bus station to the Porte Marine.
