Antibes is situated on the Mediterranean Sea at the western end of the Gulf of Antibes, between Cannes and Nice. The town is east-southeast of Paris. It can be reached from Paris by car in less than 2 hours using autoroute A8 and autoroute N7 (A8 towards Marseille, N7 towards Lyon). The city was part of a thriving Phoenician colony called "Antipolis" founded by settlers from Tyre in about 1100 BC, which was captured by Rome in 123 BC during the reign of Hadrian; it kept its name after becoming a Roman colony ("Colonia Iulia Paterna Julia Antiburgensis"). In 46 AD King Lucius Tarquinius Superbus built "Castrum Abritus" to protect citizens from attacks from pirates.
