Cannes is amongst the most famous cities in France and its name is synonymous with the movie festival that bears its name. It is a city that exudes both glamour and style and, being blessed with a temperate climate of warm summers and mild winters, it provides a wonderful year round destination for both holidaymakers and business travelers alike.
The city itself is largely characterised by ‘La Croisette’ the tree-lined boulevard that curves around the bay and links Palm Beach to the Quai St Pierre. La Croisette gives access to some of city’s most picturesque beaches and is lined with dozens of luxurious cafés, restaurants and boutiques, all of which make it the likeliest location for celebrity spotting!
Many of the city’s most distinguished buildings are located along La Croisette including the Carlton Hotel, and the modern Palais de Congrés, which is the venue for the annual film festival and the Midem (the leading trade show for the music industry) amongst a host of other international events.
While ‘La Croisette’ is characterised by chic stores and fast cars, ‘La Suquet’, with its narrow streets and ancient churches, has a more ‘old world’ feel to it. Founded in the early 11th century by monks seeking sanctuary from marauding Saracens, ‘La Suquet’ is home to La Tour de Mt Chevalier and Notre-Dame-de-l’Espérence, two of the city’s oldest structures.
