A legendary town on the Côte d’Azur, Cannes is famous all over the world. Why don't you come and be bewitched too!
It's not just the cinema festival that draws hordes of cinema stars to Cannes every year; it also has a superb bay with fine sand beaches, a historic town centre with protected buildings and an inland region which is certainly worth a visit.
Fancy the idea of visiting the historic heart of Cannes? Then head up to the district of Le Suquet, with its various pedestrianised streets and Mediterranean atmosphere: you'll enjoy an amazing view over the entire city of Cannes. Another unusual way of exploring Cannes without wearing yourself out is to take the "Petit Train de Cannes", which will carry you through the whole city and where you'll hear stories about all its districts.
Why not turn yourself into a cinema star for a few hours as you stroll down the famous Croisette! The charm of the city of Cannes is a timeless thing.
Cannes also means fine sand beaches, perfect for sharing a bit of time in the water with the family. Lying back on your towel on the beach of Le Mouré Rouge, you'll be able to see the Lérins Islands, which lie just 20 km off the coast. You can also easily get a ferry there, and enjoy strolling around on these very wild islands, among the pine and eucalyptus trees, which feature some lovely little inlets.
And a visit to the city of Cannes wouldn't be complete without stopping off at its yachting harbour. Come and see its amazing yachts and huge sailing ships. It's a sight to behold! And when it's time to eat, you can settle down at one of the restaurants of the various private beaches in the city. There's not a lot nicer than eating in a setting like this, just beside the sea!
