Cannes Worldwide known seaside and cultural town

Cannes, known worldwide for its film festival which makes it the centre of the world during ten days in May, is definitely worth a visit after the movie stars have left; in particular the historic district of Suquet and the shopping centre.

A seaside resort very popular with holidaymakers, this southern town located in the Alpes-Maritimes, in the heart of the Côte d'Azur, combines both historical heritage and modernity. This blend is found through the luxury and glamour perceived on every street corner. This former fishing village is distinguished from other towns in the region by its fine sandy beaches, beautiful bay and sunny weather almost all year round. About 45 minutes away is Camping Les Pêcheurs, a 4-star campsite.

In Cannes, you will not be bored during your holidays. Indeed, being one of the celebrities' favourite cities, there are many activities and entertainment and immerse the city in a festive atmosphere, regardless of the season. If you go there during the summer holidays, you will be able to attend the Pyrotechnic Art Festival during which fireworks of all colours will decorate the sky. There is no shortage of places of interest in this summer city. You can therefore start your stay in Cannes by taking a look at the historic monuments of the old city. For this reason, several places are worthy of interest, such as the Museum of La Castre, which you will find within the remains of the medieval castle of Le Suquet. This Museum of Culture and Ethnology was created thanks to the donations offered to the city by Baron François Lycklama. Le Suquet is also a very interesting place in Cannes. It is a district of the city where narrow and picturesque streets, as well as quite original staircases separate the houses, whose very old shape is quite impressive. La Malmaison located on the Croisette, the Silhouettes de Cinéma circuit, the Musée de la mer, as well as several other sites also deserve to be visited, if you have time.

As for other possible activities, private yacht trips are also very popular with tourists. This allows you to both admire the beauty of the ocean and escape to other surrounding tourist sites. Whether during the day or at sunset, these short walks will only add spice to your holiday in the Alpes-Maritimes. Still by the sea, on the bay of Cannes, thrill sports fans will love spending their days jet skiing, big paddle, windsurfing, or kayaking. The beaches of Cannes promise you hours of idleness or sunbathing on fine sand, to the point of forgetting the passing of time.
