WHAT TO DO IN CANNES
To discover Cannes in a few days is to experience the city more intensely. Neighbourhoods, heritage, nature and trendy bars, it is full of unique places to explore and experience. Let’s discover the many facets of Cannes through a list of possible activities.
THE ENCHANTMENT OF THE CROISETTE:
Lined with hotels and luxury boutiques, this palm-fringed ribbon runs along the bay. At the end of the Croisette, the famous Palais des Festivals is revealed. Its red carpet, trodden each year by the cream of the film world, is known throughout the world. With this little piece of heaven in front of us, the magic of Cannes begins to work!
AN EVENING OF PLEASURE AT THE MOME PLAGE:
The Croisette in Cannes means private beaches. Lined up below the promenade, each of them is a promise of festivity and idleness. Head to the Môme Plage for a drink and dinner. In this bohemian atmosphere, with your feet in the sand and your eyes turned towards the setting sun, you can enjoy a truly exceptional moment. A little later, the atmosphere takes a few degrees more, to the sound of the music, everyone starts to dance and sing.
LE SUQUET - FORVILLE MARKET:
A visit to Cannes must include the Forville market, a true gourmet journey with a southern accent. In the heart of Cannes, it opens its doors every morning. A source of inspiration and supply for star chefs, it offers a wide variety of fresh produce. Its unique architecture also makes it an ideal photo spot.
LA CASTRE AND ITS HISTORICAL TREASURES:
At the top of the Suquet, La Castre dominates the town. It is also where the church of Notre-Dame de l’Espérance is located, as well as the medieval castle of the monks of Lérins, with its square tower. The castle houses the Museum of World Explorations. Like a real treasure chest, this place houses an incredible collection of objects from unknown civilisations and countries. A most surprising journey!
LA CROIX DES GARDES:
This last day will be dedicated to nature. First of all, let’s go for a walk through the green lung of the city : the Croix des Gardes hill. It is a magnificent landscape that reveals itself as we walk along. Charmed by the fragrance of the mimosas in flower, we enjoy the view of the Esterel. A little further on, the horses of the local gendarmerie and a family of donkeys are resting peacefully. The Croix des Gardes is a protected site where it is good to walk, enjoy the calm and the view of the Cannes hinterland.
THE NATURAL CHARMS OF SAINTE-MARGUERITE ISLAND:
A few minutes by shuttle brings you closer to this little piece of land that you used to admire from the Croisette. Sainte-Marguerite Island, one of the two islands of Lérins, is a historical jewel and a true haven of peace. In the heart of the pines and eucalyptus trees, on the edge of the turquoise waters, the setting is most luxurious. After a visit to the Fort Royal, you can refresh yourself by venturing in search of the submerged statues of the underwater eco-museum. Cannes is definitely full of unique places and experiences that we will definitely come back for more.
