Fort Carre Reviews & Ratings
This ancient fort is star shaped. Le Fort Carré is a nice visit. From the top you will have also a nice view over the bay of Antibes and panoramic views direction Nice and the mountains
A gentle gradient climb to the Fort. There are Nice friendly tour guides in a couple of languages . Quite informative nice interactive tour around the Fort. With good views of the Port Vauban and Antbes at the top. Recommended if visiting Cote d azur
Should invest in training better their guides. Despite so it is a nice place for pictures, and cheap to visit. Seems well maintained.
Excellent spot for a great view of the bay and the town of Antibes. The fort is surrounded by a great park full of local flaura and fauna and is definitely worth a visit on a less warm day in the area.
Great place to visit. €3 per adult gets you entrance and a very interesting guided tour of the place, which takes about 30 minutes. You may need to wait a little while for the next tour to start and whilst there are a few locations you can look around whilst waiting, do be prepared to wait once you've exhausted those. Note that you *have* to take a tour to go around the vast majority of the fort: you can't just wander round unaccompanied. Guided tour was delivered in both French and English (after the guide checked who spoke what) and was excellent. The fort itself has a lot of interesting history, and the views from the top, of Antibes, Nice, and - on a clear day - Italy, are well worth the trek up the hill. Be sure to take water if it's a hot day: you may be there an hour, and it's exposed.
