Antibes is located on the east side of a neck of land called La Garoupe. It was founded by Phocaeans from Massilia in the 5th-centuryBC. As a Greek colony and Roman settlement, it was known as Antipolis (Ἀντίπολις, Antípolis, lit."Cross-City") from its position relative to Nice (anc.Nicaea).
Rome gradually increased its hold over the Mediterranean coast. In 43BC, Antipolis was officially incorporated in the propraetorial (senatorial from 27BC) province of Narbonesian Gaul, in which it remained for the next 500 years. Antipolis grew into the largest town in the region and a main entry-point into Gaul. Roman artifacts such as aqueducts, fortified walls, and amphoræ can still be seen today.
