Visiting Cannes – Landmarks
Cannes, famous for the Cannes Film Festival in May, actually has a huge amount to offer in the other months of the year too. Situated on France’s Cote d’Azur, many peoples enduring image of the city is of glamorous stars posing on red carpets and the sweeping sandy beach of the bay, yet this is France’s second most important city for both tourism and commerce after Paris.
Cannes is a play-ground for the rich and famous as well as discerning holiday makers from around the world, and the fine restaurants which have emerged in Cannes stay open all year round, and exquisite shopping is common place from a Cannes holiday apartment, mainly centred on the Rue d’Antibes and the glamorous Croisette.
Much of Cannes beach is privately owned, but there are two public stretches available. If you are staying in Cannes accommodation for any length of time, it is certainly worth discovering the beaches of Plages du Midi just outside town.
The old centre of town, Le Suquet, is, the most interesting part of town, where small wooden fishing boats still ply their trade among the enormous luxury yachts. The walk to the 11th century tower at the top of Rue Saint Antoine is defiantly worth the climb, as the views and restaurants which line the top end of the street are spectacular.
Nice lies 30 minutes by train from Cannes, and is the capital of the French Riviera. Nice, like Cannes, is a luxurious resort, where appearances are paramount and top class restaurants, boutiques and glamorous boulevards line beautiful, sandy beaches.
Monaco is a further 20 minutes from Nice. A day trip to Monaco from a Cannes holiday rental apartment is an ideal way to spend a day, where you can admire some of the most luxury yachts in the world, or test your luck at the famous Monte-Carlo Casino.
From May until the end of October, average daily temperatures in Cannes stay above 20°C, peaking at around 27°C in July and August. With yearly low temperatures remaining above 13°C, there is never a bad time to investigate the exquisite shopping, restaurants and luxury of Cannes holiday accommodation.

 
The Festival Palace
Also known as the Convention Centre which hosts conventions and trade fairs all year round.

Situated along the seafront, it is renowned for its famous red-carpeted stairs.
Opened in December 1982, the new Festival Palace has an overall surface capacity of 35 000 m².

 
              


The old City - Le Suquet

The old city better known as “The Suquet” is situated beside the city hall. We strongly advise you wander round this area with its numerous restaurants. If you venture all the way to the top you will be rewarded by an amazing view over Cannes.

 

The Lerins Islands

The Lérins Islands (îles de Lérins) are made up of two islands, Saint-Honorat and Sainte-Marguerite (a 20-minute boat ride away - shuttle service in the summer). It's the perfect place to spend a fun day by the sea or exploring the woods on the island. Don’t miss a visit to the fort (Fort Vauban) on the island of Sainte-Marguerite. Built in the 17th century, it became world-famous thanks to the mystery of the Man in the Iron Mask.
The island of Saint-Honorat with its monastery is home to a community of monks who tend their vineyards and sell their wine on the spot.

 

La Croisette

« La Croisette », Cannes’ famous seafront promenade is the place to shop for luxury goods. It stretches from the Festival Palace to the Palm Beach Casino. It is renowned for its grand hotels such as “the Carlton”. A stroll along the Croisette is quite delightful all year round.
