Great experiences in Cannes
The old Petite Croix pathway is today the most famous pedestrian avenue on the French Riviera with its palm trees, luxury hotels, prestigious shops and magnificent Art Deco buildings… We mean, of course, La Croisette! If you walk down it alongside the bay, you will arrive at the Palais des Festivals. This is the venue for several big events, including the famous international film festival. The first building was hastily constructed, but was replaced by a new palatial building in 1982. After renovation work in 2013, it is now a light-filled, aesthetically attractive building.
Le Suquet is a little jewel in Cannes. The city's birthplace and oldest district, it stands on a hilltop, making it the perfect place to a enjoy a view over the bay and La Croisette. Take a walk through the pedestrian part of the city with its steep, winding streets. If you are especially energetic, you can walk up the steps to the remains of the castle, today the Castres Museum. You will be rewarded by one of the best views over the city.
The Lérins Islands include Sainte Marguerite and Saint Honorat, two treasures with a rich cultural and natural heritage. Sainte-Marguerite is the biggest island, with a 150-hectare forest filled with Aleppo pines and eucalyptus trees. Here you can also visit Fort Vauban, where the famous "man in the iron mask" was imprisoned. There are also 15 or so beaches to enjoy. Saint Honorat is smaller, but rich in traces of past times. It is strongly marked by 16 centuries of monastic life. Here you can visit the 5th century abbey founded by the monk St Honoratus himself.
