About Cannes, France

Cannes has an international reputation for glamour - pictures and movie clips of its croisette, its film stars and its grand hotels instantly conjure up an image of style and sophistication. Cannes is much changed from its beginnings as a resort when an English traveller, Lord Brougham, was quarantined there in 1834. Nowadays, the city hosts conventions and festivals all year round - and there's plenty to attract the guests and delegates.

"good to shop and sun tan in nice beach Monico and Monte Carlo were magnificent to see." in 19 reviews.

"I suppose the film festival would be a reason." in 7 reviews.

"We chose not to do a tour since the city had a great self-guided walking tour." in 5 reviews.

We got a shore excursion with AA to see Cannes, Nice, and Monte Carlo. We saw the changing of the guard at Prince Albert's castle. We even got to take a lap around the Grand Prix. This was a great port and an experience we will always cherish.

Avoid the Film Institute area (especially during the festival). Instead reserve your tender early and go walking around the Old Town and climb us to the highest points that will give you great pictures. (Don't go on a tour. That will provide you with time to find a cute café where you can grab a coffee and crepe and people watch.)

Easy to get around, you don't need any tours here. Walk to the old town for scenic views. Bring a towel to hangout on the beach with the locals. On the main street Rue Meynadier there's a Carrefour market as well as few nice bakeries and sandwich shops.

Excellent first experience of France. We grabbed a great taxi driver to give us a tour. We got to see the French Riviera Coast, Nice, a perfume factory, and had lunch in Monaco. Does it get any better?

Don't even bother with an excursion here. Great beach right next to the pier, along with good cafes and shopping.
