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.

The Man in the Iron MaskStay.com Editors' Note
Tour du Masque - Legend has it that the famous “Man in the Iron Mask” escaped from his prison on Sainte-Marguerite Island, to come out and live his last years in this old, 12th century tower.
According to the tales of local folk, the ghost of the Man in the Iron Mask still haunts this tower on dark nights.
Although you will be unlikely to see any ghosts on the Tour du Masque, you will at least be able to see some fantastic views of old Cannes and the Suquet area, that much is guaranteed!
