Harbourside glamour: Things to do in Cannes

We’re most familiar with Cannes for its film festival — where the streets are filled with tuxedos and flashing lights. But the glitz and glam in Cannes happens all year round. Take a stroll around Cannes and you’ll find trendy bars, boutique shops, and a stunning harbour filled with liner-sized yachts. 

Cannes is the perfect place for chic events and modish meetings. Here’s a handful of the many things you can do in Cannes:

 

  • Admire the Ferraris and Porsches often found around the harbour

  • Relax on the sun-lounger filled beaches

  • Visit the promenade of La Croisette, where the Cannes Film Festival is famously held

  • Discover old-style charm in Cannes’ oldest district, Le Suquet

  • Check out celebrity yachts and glamour at Vieux Port

 

Getting around Cannes is easy. The city is equipped with an efficient local bus system, Bus Azur. The bus system provides a service not only in the city but also to neighbouring Cannes la Bocca, Le Cannet, and Mandelieu-la Napoule.
