Boulevard de la Croisette, 06414 Cannes, France
Stretching down for two kilometres from the Palais des Festival is this glorious and glamorous promenade. It lines the entirely of the Cannes coastline, so it’s basically the city’s favourite place for a stroll. Why wouldn’t it be? Shady palm trees, beautiful bodies on the beach, magnificent views of the yachts and cruise ships on...

St. Marguerite’s, Cannes
10:30 am - 05:45 pm
The two Lerin islands, Saint Marguerite and Saint Honorat, have enough history of their own to impress. Only a short boat ride away from Cannes, both the islands are in the grips of an atmosphere of mystery, perhaps even mysticism. Their natural eucalyptus and pine forests only enhance this feeling.
30 minutes from Cannes by boat, the Fort Royale o...

Dedicated to Grassois painter Jean-Honore Fragonard, this small museum contains 15 of his most famous works as well as the works of his sister in law Marguerite Gerard and another painter from Grasse, Jean-Baptiste Mallet. The building itself is a pretty sight to see, an 18th century townhouse with some lovely furniture, ceiling frescoes and old world appeal.

Rue d’Antibes, Cannes
Forget the promenade – this is the shopping destination in Cannes. Hundreds of shops from every luxury brand conceivable cater to the rich and famous here; I swear that the main reason tourists even frequent this place. The window-shopping alone ought to have its own price tag here (I don’t really mean that – just feel that ...

Le Suquet, Cannes
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 Sa...

This 25000 metre square exhibition and additional auditorium space was opened in December 1982. It’s why Cannes is famous. It’s where the annual Cannes film festival is held.

12 Rue Louis Blanc, 06400 Cannes, France
07:00 am - 01:00 pm
If the luxury shops of Rue d’Antibes aren’t quite to your tastes (or at least, to your wallet’s tastes), you can hope to find a much more budget-friendly bargain here. Most of the houses are charming 18th century constructs that have been refashioned into either trendy and affordable boutiques or some of the mind-blowing cuisine d...

Le Suquet, Rue de la Castre, 06400 Cannes, France
10:00 am - 07:00 pm
It was originally a square castle-fort, with a dungeon and a watchtower. I know, it sounds like something out of a strategy game, but there you have it. A beautiful Mediterranean garden softens the entrance, makes it inviting. The watchtower can be climbed.
More than a century of donation and acquisitions have gained this museum a surprisingly larg...
