Old Cannes. Before the city became the most important film and celebrity destination in the world, Cannes was a fishing town, and Le Suquet is where all the fishermen resided. A veritable maze of cute, cobblestoned roads and staircases, this is pedestrian heaven. The Rue de Suquet used to be the main road into the city, and together with the Rue Saint Antoine today serves up a plethora of mouth-watering restaurants. High up on the hill you’ll find a clock tower and the Gothic-Renaissance Notre Dame d’Esparance, - a place from where Cannes is laid out in front of you like a pretty watercolours. The views from the ramparts by the church are stunning, especially at sunset, and you can see far out to the mysterious Lerins Islands. Inside the church itself you can see some beautiful 19th century paintings. The church is lit up beautifully at night so you can visit then too. Keep your camera in hand , your head will spin with all the photo opps.
- A.k.a Cannes Old Quarter and Old Port.
- Combine your trip up to the church with a visit to the nearby Musee de la Castre.
- Too many to count
