Cannes is a city located in southern France, famous for being host of the annual Cannes Film Festival. It is a popular tourist destination and visitors can enjoy a lot of fun things to do in Cannes during ones vacation. Although it is a great place for glamour and shopping for brand items, there is also much history throughout to serve as a holiday destination.
Canne’s beautiful beaches is a great experience to be tasted. Get a tan at Plage Mace or take a 10 minute boat ride to Iles De Lerins and enjoy your holiday on the island.
Cannes nightlife is another great experience. Head on out into the night and join the fantastic Cannes nightlife, with many clubs staying open until 7am.
The Cannes Film Festival can be argued to be the most prestigious one in the world. It draws the biggest stars in film and is the height of old and new school glamour.
If you love eyeing up classic or new boats and concept vessels, check out the Festival Boat Show, Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes.
Another great activity not to be missed is visiting the museums such as: Musee de la Castre, to ponder on ancient artifacts, or Centre d’art La Malmaison, where you could get to see Marina Picasso’s inheritance – her grandfather’s works!
Cannes has a Mediterranean climate, and the city enjoys 12 hours of sunshine per day during summer (May to September), while in winter (December to February) the weather is mild. If you are going for a relaxing holiday to soak up the sun, or to do some serious shopping, a good time to go is during the fall season. During September, Cannes is less crowded and temperatures are between 16-21 degrees Celsius (60° to 70° Fahrenheit).
If you are looking forward to visiting the Boat Show and Film Festival you should visit Cannes during the month of May. Be aware that this is the peak season and it will be very crowded.
Most tourist travel to Nice and the Nice’s Cote d’Azur International Airport (NCE).
From there one can go to Cannes by train, bus or taxi.
