Host of the annual Cannes Film Festival

It hosts one of the most prestigious International film festivals in the world, but Cannes is more than a travel destination for filmophiles. Fashionistas and fun-seekers will find an exclusive city with high-end restaurants, exotic nightlife, luxury boutiques, and designer fashion shops lining La Croisette. Cannes is an amazing experience for the posh traveler, but it attracts history lovers as well, as no other town on the French Riviera has such a dramatic and mysterious past. One example? The famous Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned on the Ile Sainte-Marguerite, half a mile off shore from the city.

Favorite place to hang out Editors' Note

A favorite place for the locals of Cannes to hang out during the day time, La Croisette is a wonderful French promenade located right in the heart of town, hugging the seashore and in view of miles of sandy beaches.

On one side of La Croisette you have the Mediterranean Sea and the iLerins islands just off the shore, with the Esterel mountains in the background.

On the other side, you have fashionable boutiques, palm trees and elegant restaurants. There is no better place to relax and watch the world go by in Cannes!
