Cannes Attractions

Cannes is one of the few places in the world where you can hobnob with celebrities. As the site of the annual Cannes Film Festival, it sees travelers arrive every year for the event. Not only can you watch some of the top films not yet released to the general public, but you can also see celebrities wandering around the city. If you plan your trip before or after the festival, you can still find attractions in Cannes making your trip more memorable.

Things to do in Cannes include La Croisette, which is a road running along the beach. While many travelers love dipping their toes in the water and wandering through the sand, many others enjoy walking along the street and taking in the local sites. Once you finish exploring the restaurants and shops in the area, you can take a boat tour of one of the surrounding areas. These islands are just a short ride away from the beach, and you can spend an entire day on one of these islands without seeing everything.

The best Cannes activities include a number of walking tours of historic districts. Le Suquet and Rue d'Antibes are just two of the most historic neighborhoods in the city. If you love checking out historic architecture and seeing friendly faces, you'll love these areas. Rue d'Antibes is even home to some of the hottest tourist spots in the city.

With so many different must-see beaches in Cannes, you might wonder which of those beaches you should see. The Plage du Gray d'Albion is a favorite among those looking for something a little more upscale. This is the same beach where celebrities head to relax and unwind, and the beach boasts a large piece of carpet running from the beach to the water, keeping your feet clean and dry. You can book Cannes excursions to the beach, or you can grab a map and look at other places near the beach. After a day at the beach, you'll look forward to taking Cannes tours.
