Cannes has tropical gardens and plants everywhere.Thats why i really liked it.The Palais des Festivals et des Congres has beautiful gardens outside the front of it and famous stars handprints in the pavement.I enjoyed sitting near the fountains near the building too.The gardens are kept spotless and they ran all the way along the boulavard.
I enjoyed walking along and window shopping in the trendy shops and sipping a glass of wine in a bar.I was surprised by the prices of having a drink as it was not too expensive.I had a small bottle of wine(2 glasses) and got olives in one bowl and nibbles in another bowl for £5.This was right on front.So not any dearer than England.If anything its better value.
A small 'square' on the Le Suquet hill, just below the tower and ramparts, and places to site amidst large oleander bushes and beneath lovely shade trees.
At the west end of "La Croisette", between the Palais des Festivals and the beach, is a shaded grassy park area with playground, including slides and things. You will find a real carousel there, or sometimes an even bigger one out on the esplanade in front of the "Palais".
At the east end of "La Croisette", just before the new Port Canto yacht harbor, is another park and playground. This one also has carnival-type rides for the bigger kids.
Beside the playground at the east end of "La Croisette" is the Jardin Alexandre III, a lovely big flower-garden park.
