Holidays in Cannes
The area and getting around
Cannes is located on the French Riviera in south France. It is a town of 80,000 people that explodes in number in summer and especially during its famous film festival. The heart of the city is the Pointe Croisette. Flanking the city’s main beach, it is home to many of the town’s chic restaurants, designer shops and glittering nightclubs, casinos, theatres and concert halls.Plunge into centuries of history in the Old Town
To the west of the port is the Old Town. Beautifully located on a hill, it affords outstanding views of Cannes. The cobble-stoned streets are lined with old-world villas from the 1600s and myriad boutique cafes and restaurants. The city’s most historic attractions are found here, such as the Notre-Dame Gothic church, which dates all the way back to the 1300s.
Travellers and activities
Cannes is not only the number one luxury shopping destination in France, but one of the best places in the world for shopaholics with a bottomless credit card. On La Croisette you can walk for an hour and pass nothing but luxury – eye-wateringly expensive boutiques, with all the high-end brand names represented, including Dior, Chanel, Gucci and Bulgari. Your credit card isn’t made of gold? Then head to Rue d'Antibes and Rue Meynadier, where you will find a mixture of upmarket high street shops, trendy fashion brands, perfumeries and boutiques with prices you can afford!Cannes for museum aficionados
Cannes is best known for its sandy beaches and international festivals, but the city’s cultural heritage is no less impressive. The chic and intimate Centre d’Art La Malmaison, housed in the former Grand Hotel, hosts temporary exhibitions from world-famous artists such as Picasso and Chagall. The Musée de la Castre, located within a medieval castle high above the city, provides the most spectacular vistas in all of Cannes, and is home to exhibits that include medieval artefacts, Asian instruments and 19th-century paintings. At Villa Domergue you can see the works of Jean-Gabriel Domergue, a prominent 20th century French painter, known primarily for his impressive portraits of Parisian women.
During the International Film Festival, 200,000 actors, directors, and producers flock to Cannes. Is there anywhere better in the world to go celebrity spotting?!
