La Piazza is supposed to be "the best pasta & pizza place" in Cannes.
The fresh pasta we had was okay, nothing more and nothing less. Just one of those Italian restaurants that can be found all over Europe. Tomate mozzarelle to start with, followed by pasta with salmon

Cannes less well known beach
Everyone knows La Croisette - the overdeveloped "Silicone Baywatch " of Cannes. Less well known is the beach the other side of the port heading East towards Napoule Madelieu, the Gulf of Mandelieu. Instead of a flat horizon line, you have shimmering in the distance the blue outline of the Massif d'Esterell, St Tropez, Frejus and St Raphael. The beach is public and at the neck of the bay the fine sand shelves gently into the water, perfect for swimming.
July 2-3, 2001, Cannes
After a half-day trip in Monaco, I proceeded to Cannes. It was 15:00 now, I hardly found a Youth Hostel. Yet, most hostels were full and I was arranged with a mattress on the floor which was grey and terribly dirty. Fortunately, I brought myself a thin sleepbag so that I could covered it and had a good sleep on it.
After the settlement, I went out and uphill and had an overlook of Cannes, it was really calm & transquil.
"Mr. & Mrs. Chibani"
When I reached the peak, I sat down and took a rest on the bench, I chatted with a Cannes couple - Mr. & Mrs. Chibani. With my satisfactory French ability, I asked for their advice for visiting the lavender field in Provence , then we downhill together and they recommanded a French restaurant and I therefore enjoyed a great supper cost 65FF, for some 4 steps french cuisine, bravo!!
Then I rushed back to the hostel and had my hot-water shower before 22:00.
