Bars just off seafront are cheaper
Cannes is a special place and it makes anyone who visits special.I was pleasantly surprised at the prices of most things and enjoyed my brief visit there.Cannes is easy to get around . just wear a good comfy pair of shoes.There are plenty of trendy clothes shops and just off the seafront was a market which i found some great food in.I bought some cooked pizza slices and cakes and took them back to my hotel.I also bought some perfume there which was a reasonable price.£8 i think.
Cannes has a mild climate and from May til Oct it has beach and swimwear weather,,, 20c- 28c.When i went in Oct it was 26c most days.
While in Cannes try to go inland abit too and see some worthwjile places.Grasse for one is well worth visiting.
La Holandesa in Cannes on the French Riviera
"CANNES Très jolie !!! :o)"
I've been here many, many times and I looooove the mediterean way of life!!! :o)
Cannes is beautiful. It has a wonderful atmosphere, constant gentle sea breeze.
One of the most beautiful cities on the Cote d' Azur. The city is part of the Cote d' Azur, that hundred-mile stretch of the southeast France also known to the world as the French Riviera.
Cannes is the byword for year round enjoyment, which can be found close at hand. A place where culture, shopping, relaxation, sport and leisure meet.
In the heart of Cannes is The Croisette, the Palais des Festivals, the beaches, the marina, the boutiques.
Palais des Festivals - The Palais and convention center has turned Cannes into one of the most popular convention cities in the world. The Cannes International Film Festival is held here.
Promenade de La Croisette - One of the most famous promenades in the world.
For three kilometres following the curve of the bay all the way to Port Canto, the casino of Palm Beach. You can find your way back to the city center (centre ville) by walking along the famous rue d'Antibes, renowned for its international designer boutiques and world-class shopping. The rue Meynadier, restricted to pedestrian traffic only, runs near the rue d'Antibes and has excellent shops and boutiques of every kind. It is also less expensive, with many more trendy shops that open onto the street.
There are several restaurants, crêperies, bistros, green grocers and more, which are full of life...from morning till night!
Marché Forville is the covered produce market in Cannes. It is a lively, colourful, a very noisy French affair taking up an entire city block. Stalls sell vegetables, fruit, fish, oysters, every conceivable variety of paté and olives marinated in a thousand flavours. The flower market lies at the western end of the covered area. On a Monday, Forville transforms itself into a Flea Market (Marché Brocante).
De la mer et des plages de Cannes….. The beaches are sandy and the color of the sea…
The sea is wowwwww, so beautiful blue!!!
Is the bluest of all the European seas. It is a deep cobalt blue…azur. One finds very small waves only when the Mistral, the famous wind of Southern France, has passed.
Isles de lerins / Lerins Islands:
Thirty minutes across the bay from Cannes you'll find this small island where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned (you can even visit his cell).
See more in my tips about it.
