Things To Do When In Cannes

The South of France is a wonderful area to visit. With pleasant weather, ocean views and plenty of things to do, it is a great trip for anyone. Here are a few of my favorite things to do when in Cannes!

  • Musee de la Castre – This museum is renowned for its amazing collection of musical instruments from around the world. You’ll also enjoy the prints of old Cannes and the archeology section.
  • La Croisette – La Croisette gets its name from a small cross that used to stand east of the bay. Today it is the long boulevard along the seafront. On one side is the ritzy hotels and designer boutiques and on the other the private beaches and great views of the Mediterranean. The private beaches are owned by the super deluxe hotels.
  • Forville Market – If you enjoy picking up your own food for a picnic lunch be sure to visit this unique market full of French delicacies.
  • Les Îles de Lerin – While not technically in Cannes, these islands are only a 15-minute boat ride away. The largest of the Lerin Islands, Île de Sainte-Marguerite is worth the trip to see the seventeenth century fort housing the Maritime Museum (free admission).
  • Festival international d’art pyrotechnique –  This festival brings together the most accomplished fireworks designers worldwide. Find yourself a great spot to view the Bay of Cannes and witness the most amazing fireworks reflected off the water. Arrive early because this is a popular festival! Admission is free!

Cannes is a great place to spend a few days or even a week. You’ll love strolling the quaint streets, enjoying the beaches and taking in some of the local sites!
