High profile and dazzling due to its luxury superyacht visitors, Cannes Film Festival and host of haute-couture boutiques and world-class hideaways, there's nothing this dazzling member of the Côte d'Azur doesn't offer...
With a lovely quay and promenade, La Croisette, running the length of the beach and as famous for its beauty as its shopping, the amenities of Cannes don’t stop there. Numerous roads lead up into the valley’s olive groves, and out into the gorgeous fertile countryside rich with fruit and nut trees. Enjoying a favorable climate the whole year-round coupled with a rarity of rain and fog, this is the ultimate destination for those seeking asylum from grey skies.
La Croisette is a good starting point of your visit to Cannes. This 2-km-long boulevard runs along the Mediterranean Sea, The Musée de la Castre is also located within a medieval castle that was once home to the monks of Lérins. Positioned high above the city. Le Suquet is the old quarter of Cannes. Located at the western end of La Croisette, right next to le Vieux Port, you’ll find a great choice of quaint local restaurants in the meandering cobbled lanes, as well as a few of Cannes’ landmarks such as Forville Market
Located at the foot of Le Suquet, the old quarter of Cannes, the Vieux Port is a pleasant place for a stroll and for a relaxing break while enjoying a drink on the outdoor terrace of one of the many bars and restaurants lining Quai Saint-Pierre. Located at the top of Le Suquet hill, above the Vieux Port, Musée de la Castre is an eclectic museum in a 12th-century castle listed as a national monument.
Cannes plays host an array of private beaches all boasting the best scenic beauty in the region. Carlton Beach, the same beach where Grace Kelly filmed To Catch a Thief in 1954, is one of them.
