What top attractions are a must-see in Cannes?

Planning Your Visit

  • Sun protection

    Due to its sunny location on the Mediterranean, it's vital to be sensible when it comes to sun protection.

  • Restaurants

    To save money on food in this stomping ground of the rich and famous, go beyond the bustling Antibes Street where you will find some cheaper dining options.

  • Day trips

    If you can't get enough of the swanky lifestyle, it's easy to get to the principality of Monaco by car or even by boat.

  • Stay safe

    Unfortunately, where there's money, there's bound to be crime. Don't flash your cash, and dress casual unless the occasion calls for it.

  • Best time to visit
    Unless you want to book well in advance and wrestle with thousands of other visitors, its best to avoid Cannes in May during its International Film Festival. Temperatures don't start to drop until November, and although its not an ideal time for swimming it will be the best time for your wallet!

The tour was really good as we were able to see many different places along the French Riviera all in one day. We visited Cannes, Antibes, Eze, Saint Paul De Vence & Monaco in addition to having a tour round a perfume factory. Our guide Xavier was very good and was really informative and kept the trip fun. My only negative would be to suggest that if the Cannes film festival & Monaco F1 race is on is to be perhaps run different tours than the one I did as many roads are closed off meaning you are unable to see Cannes & Monaco properly as it is chaos on these places on this weekend. Despite this - our guide Xavier did a good job to find ways round and still show us amazing things, he really tried hard to ensure we still saw everything and is a great guide !

Nathan was an exceptional host. We were Picked up at our hotel promptly and he kept everything running smoothly and on time. Lots of fun and a great personality as well as very knowledgeable and helpful. He even taught us a little French! Loved his spirit and he made you feel like you had known him for a long time. We were lucky enough to enjoy our excursion when the film festival and Grand Prix were in full force And we were happy that we were able to still visit and even be dropped off at the red carpet as well as see from a vantage point the trials on Friday. One of our best excursions. D and A
