Alain Poher was a French politician, who was president of the French Senate from 1968 to 1992, and served twice as the country's acting president. Albuisson has engraved this stamp in his memory, on the background of Palais du Luxembourg, that houses the French Senate. The building was originally built by Marie de Medici.

Antibes was a Greek fortified town named Antipolis in the 5th century BC, and later a Roman town, and always an active port for trading along the Mediterranean. Today it's an attractive and active town, popular with "foreigners" from Paris and the north of France, with non-French, and with the local population.

The natural beauty remains in the old town, with the ramparts along the sea and the long, arched protective wall along the port. There are plenty of little streets for exploring, restaurants of all types and prices, and lots of shops, from authentic little hardware/general-stores to tourist gift shops.

Antibes is the proper name of this ancient town, but it's commonly referred to as Antibes - Juan-les-Pins. The Juan-les-Pins part is a seaside resort and night-life area of sandy beaches, boutiques, night clubs and casino. The two places are close together, a good walk or short drive over the hill of the narrow part of the peninsula, or a longer and lovely drive around the coastline of the Cap d'Antibes.
