Cannes may be best known for its annual Film Festival, but there’s a lot more to this sophisticated Mediterranean town than the red carpet and the international stars who descend on the town every May.
A stroll along the Boulevard de la Croisette takes you past the luxury palace hotels the place is famous for. With the glittering blue Mediterranean beside you, walk to the marina with its fabulous yachts. The old town, Le Suquet, climbs up a steep hill from the Old Port. The streets are full of restaurants and bars; make your way up to the 11th-century Tour du Mont Chevalier for the Musee de la Castre, an odd and fascinating 19th century collection of ethnographic items from around the world.
