Cannes wouldn;t be Cannes without her many Casino's. You know how it goes when you attract the rich and famous ... you have to create places where they can spend their money (or just throw it away). Cannes has several casino's and in the larger hotels also gambling tables are available. Two casino's are however worth mentioning. Here's the first, directly next to to "Palais de Festival et des Congress": Casino de la Croisette.
Take a walk along Boulevard de la Croisette and dream about being able to afford to stay in one of these grand old (extremely expensive!!) hotels.
Make sure you don't get run down by the latest model ferrari when you cross the road...
We really enjoyed walking around the city of Cannes. We were there during the film festival, so there was always that chance of seeing someone famous. It never happened for us, but Cannes is so beautiful we didn't really care much.
I found drinking along the seafront affordable but having a meal was too expensive for me.Meals were like £50 a person.So i had a meal up near my hotel which was about 20 minute walk from seafront.Prices there were at least half price.I found a nice pizza place and i had a pizza with wine for £7.I also went into a bar opposite my hotel and had a lager which was about half price.But its worth having a drink on the seafront purely for the great atmosphere and you kind of feel special.Also the loos in the bars and or restuarants along the front are wonderful, marble floors, free prefume and the size of my lounge.
Close to the "Festival" building is an
old carousel with a lot of interesting
details and was fun to see, and also
to see the smiles on the faces of the
kids riding it ......
Famous all over the world, this streets is full of famous "hands" of actors and cinemas stars. I was putting mine in Mel Gibson's hand and I discovered mine is bigger :D
