Getting to Antibes by road

The road network in most of Western Europe is exceptionally good and in particular people find navigating through France very simple.

The motorways in France are signposted with blue signs. They may also be marked with the word 'Péage' and this means that you are going onto a tolled section of the motorway.

The free national routes or 'RN' roads are marked with green sign posts. The roads are toll free and they often skirt the towns in a series of roundabouts and by-pass sections.See viaMichelin for details.
