 3.In the old town near the remparts.

That location could be more specific. I suggest: "3. On Boulevard d'Aguillon at the corner of Rue Thuret, in the old town near the ramparts." Knowing the Wiki aversion to "original research," is it sufficient to cite Plan de Ville, Office du Tourisme? I really did use mine to verify the location so as not to have to trust my memory, even though I have a second home in Antibes. Oh, and the original contributor either misspelled "ramparts" or used the French spelling, the noun form of remparer: to defend, to fortify. Dick Kimball (talk) 12:41, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia is against original research; Wikivoyage depends on it! Please plunge forward and edit the article as appropriate! Ikan Kekek (talk) 12:55, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Caption: Sunset at Juan-Les-Pins near Antibes

Juan-les-pins isn't near Antibes, it's a part of Antibes. I suggest: "Sunset at the Juan-les-Pins section of Antibes". Oh, and they don't capitalize Les. Dick Kimball (talk) 11:57, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

It is not a long drive from the airport to Antibes

I've measured the distance from Aeroport Nice-Côte-d'Azur to my home on Cap d'Anibes at 19 Km. Maybe, "It's about 20 kilometers from the airport to Antibes" would be better. Dick Kimball (talk) 12:17, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

These sorts of changes are not controversial. Please plunge forward and make the changes. And thanks. Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:30, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Relocated Tourist Information Office[edit]

Lest my edit be reverted as original source material, since I maintain a second home in Antibes: the tourist office at 11, place du Général de Gaulle in Antibes has been relocated to 42, avenue Robert Soleil, near the train station. I hereby cite the France Telecom Pages Juanes, 2016 | 2017, Alpes-Maritimes, p. 303 (box on lower right)." I also corrected, "51, Boulevard Charles Guillaumont," to, "51, boulevard Charles Guillaumont" because that's the way addresses are written in French. Dick Kimball (talk) 14:11, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

I just visited the Juan-les-Pins tourist office at 60, chemin des Sables to pick up tickets to Jazz à Juan. I haven't verified that the office at 51, boulevard Charles Guillaumont has closed, so I simply added this address; citation is the same Yellow Pages box, in fact the following entry.
