World renowned for the revered Cannes Film Festival that occurs there every year, the cosmopolitan city of Cannes exudes glitzy glamour and picturesque charm. Its enviable coastal location is enhanced by the verdant beauty of the surrounding hills, and the city’s combination of lavish luxury and natural splendour attracts some of the world’s most affluent adventurers. Luxurious yachts and private jets regularly deliver the rich and famous to the plush hotels and affluent villas that line the famous Boulevard de la Croisette, making Cannes the perfect place in which to people watch.
The manicured, tree studded streets of Cannes afford wanderers some wonderful architectural examples; the Cannes City Hall presents a fabulous façade of arched windows and elaborate engravings topped with an authoritative clock and vivid terracotta roof.
Continuing to walk down the richly decorated Allees de la Liberte Charles de Gaule will deliver visitors to the breathtaking Notre Dame, a cathedral that rivals Paris’ iconic landmark in aesthetic beauty. Perched on the hilltop at the west end of the blissful Cannes Beach, panoramic city vistas can be enjoyed from this excellent vantage point.
The magnificent Musee de la Mer is an all-encompassing cultural experience located in the Royal Fort of the Cannes Bay; hailed as a museum of underwater archaeology, the captivating collection features shipwrecks dating back to Roman times and is said to have inspired Alexander Dumas’ seminal novel The Man in the Iron Mask.
Located in the historical heart of Canne’s ornate Old Town, the sumptuous culinary offerings of 24 Suquet have earned it the title as one of Canne’s most refined restaurants; provincial cuisine is presented perfectly and given a cosmopolitan flair unlike the usual classic regurgitation of traditional cuisine. A pleasant ambience and rustic interior design make this restaurant a dining delight.
