Newport Beach has established a Sister City relationship with Antibes in 1990
Antibes is located in the sunny “Côte d’Azur”, the Mediterranean French coast. The city was founded in the 5th or 4th century B.C. and was deeply influenced by the Greek world – its original name was Antipolis. The old harbor with its citadel overhanging the sea is maybe one of the most beautiful of the coast. But the surroundings of Antibes are also specialized in new technologies: the complex Sophia Antipolis is very dynamic in that sector. The city is culturally very rich: famous painter Picasso settled his atelier in Antibes in the 1950’s.
