Classic Cannes: Take a Stroll Down La Croisette

For the quintessential Cannes experience, you need to head to its famous promenade La Croisette, which links the glamorous city with its picturesque beach. The name La Croisette comes from Provençal name, ‘Crouseto’, which means ‘little cross’.

The History of La Croisette

Many years ago La Croisette was little more than a dirt road surrounded by reeds, swamps and sand dunes. The road was often washed away by the waves and was even named ‘Little Siberia’ by the local fishermen.

In order to please the rich holidaymakers who visited Cannes in the winter, the construction of a new promenade was started in 1850. By 1874 the promenade was opened up to traffic, and in 1890 it was extended to the end of the cape at one end of town.

The promenade remained the same until 1960, when it was widened to make room for two traffic lanes and a row of restaurants. The beaches to the side of La Croisette were also widened.

What to See and Do at La Croisette

Today, La Croisette is more than 3km long and is lined with elegant hotels, casinos and restaurants. It’s a lovely spot from which to admire the city of Cannes, passing its picturesque beaches, rose garden, new harbour and Pierre Canto gardens.

An oratory sits at the far end of the cape, which reminds visitors of the pilgrims who left from this point for the island St. Honorat and the monks of Lérins who lived there.
