Cannes

3.9

Festival City

Although its luxury shops, nightlife, casinos, and high-end restaurants give Cannes a feeling of exclusivity, this classic French Riviera city has alternatives to suit every budget. Located in the Alpes-Maritimes department, Cannes is home to an immense marina with yachts and superyachts for the rich and famous. Even on a budget, you can still admire the beauty and architecture of Le Suquet--the old town with narrow, winding cobbled streets and quaint souvenir shops. Then, sit at an outdoor cafe for world-class people watching--and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the occasional star sighting at the lovely marina. While Cannes is not renowned for traditional theater, its annual Cannes Film Festival, held in May since 1949, puts the city on the cultural map. If designer label shopping is your thing, be sure to visit La Croisette Boulevard, known for its luxury hotels, boutique shops, and haute couture. Cannes is in French Riviera - Cote d'Azur. Customize your holiday with our France travel tool to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Cannes

Enjoy five-star luxury fit for royalty and movie stars at one of the city's beachfront hotels. Located along Cannes' renowned waterfront promenade, these hotels allow you to stay close to the city's expensive shops, chic restaurants, and prestigious private beaches. For just a little extra, you can get a room with a view over the Mediterranean and the nearby Lerins Islands. If you need something a little quieter and less expensive, consider staying at a boutique hotel situated farther away from the busy city center.
