what to visit
La Croisette is one of the most iconic streets in France. It certainly dominates Cannes, running the length of the seafront for a mile. This is where you’ll find all the smartest hotels, many of which have their own private beaches. If you don’t mind paying for a sun lounger, you can even choose to enjoy waiter service on the beach. Watch Cannes’ chicest residents walking their dogs, jogging, or just sitting down and having a chat on one of the chairs lining the route.
The French are renowned for their daily markets, which are replete with local, seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables. Head to Cannes’ Marché Forville any morning (except Mondays) to try the local produce (olives, meats, seafood and more) and have a bite to eat.
La Mairie (the Town Hall)
Louis Hourlier built the Town Hall in just three years and construction was completed in 1877. Looking out to the port, the building is a wonderful example of 19th-century architecture. This is the place where people come to register everything in local life and, like most French towns, it forms the beating heart of the city.
Le Vieux Port
The Old Port of Cannes is an interesting mix of traditional charm and immense wealth. It’s a great place to watch huge yachts arrive into town while having a drink in one of the cool bars that line the water’s edge. It’s an Instagram favourite at sunrise or sunset when the magical colours of the portside buildings seem to come alive.
