Famed for its annual Film Festival which attracts Hollywood's biggest stars, Cannes is one of the most glamorous visitor destinations in the world.
Once a quiet fishing village, this stunning French Riviera town epitomises sophistication an prosperity. Its mild climate and beautiful beaches attract tourists all year round.
Some beaches are private, some are free. Separating the shore from its stunning iconic strip of elegant hotels, bars and designer boutiques, is Boulevard de la Croisette popular with locals and visitors for gentle strolling and promenading.
Cannes boasts a wealth of choice when it comes to where to drink, eat, dance and play. The historic quarter of Le Suquet with its churches and winding streets above the Vieux-Port Harbour, offers a cosmopolitan mix of cafes and restaurants of all nationalities.
Impressive yachts and boats are moored in the harbour alongside the world-famous Palais des Festivals, the venue for both the Film Festival and other business conventions and festivals staged throughout the year.
Situated in the mid-point of the Côte d'Azur, Cannes is the ideal base for day trips to other coastal towns or interesting destinations. Visit les Gorges du Verdon, an immense canyon that should be seen to be believed. Or for family fun, there's a Marine Park, a water park and aquarium with daily live shows.
