CANNES

Once a small fishing village, Cannes in France on the French Riviera is now a glamorous and expensive seaside town considered to be one of the social hubs of Europe. Cannes moment to shine arrives in May as the venue for the Cannes Film Festival, entertaining the rich and famous. Tourists can check out the beauty and architecture of Le Suquet, with its cobbled streets and breathtaking views, or sit at street side tables and enjoy the favoured hobby of people watching up and down the lovely marina.

The public beaches are crowded, and are found at the far east and west of town. If you want a quieter beach, a better option is to go to the Îles de Lérins. At night the beaches can be tranquil, but watch out for spectacular fireworks displays in the bay. Îles de Lérins consists of two islands. The smaller is St Honorat, which has a monastery and ruined castle. The monks sell monastery-made food/drink products like wine which make unique souvenirs. The larger island is Ste Marguerite which also has a castle, shops, bars, and restaurants. Find a quiet cove, some shade from palm trees, and a cheap snorkel before you swim around the rocky coves.

Cannes is renowned for its luxury boutiques and designer fashion. The shops in Cannes are concentrated between La Croisette and rue d'Antibes - a distance easily covered on foot. Here you'll find all the luxury boutiques you could possibly desire as well as other shops selling products at a more affordable price range. The old town has any number of shops selling souvenirs as well.

For a spectacular eating and viewing food experience, no other market in Cannes beats Marché Forville for scale and variety. The market itself is at the west end of rue Meynardiers, one of the Cote's best gourmand streets.
