wandering around Juan
Juan-les-Pins, France is over the hill from Antibes and can be visited by going up Blvd Wilson from Antibes. Sometimes Antibes and Juan are spoken as one city, Antibes-Juan-les-Pins. Most tourist and tour books consider Antibes the better choice for a stop.
Frankly, Juan is not one of my favorite towns to visit on the Côte d’Azur. The beach front is lined with condominiums. If one ventures a street or two inland, the blocks look unattractive and sometimes unkempt. I saw a former 4-star hotel that looks now like a squatter building.
Today, I walked over to Juan, about a 10 minutes walk from my apartment. Not far at all. The sun shown bright. Il faisait beau. I wanted to take advantage of the sun. Juan does truly have better access to the sun than Antibes. (Click on a photo to see more.)
