Cannes, with its world renowned Film Festival, gorgeous beaches and luxurious boutiques is a must-see on the French Riviera. Visitors enjoy walking along La Croisette, the famous waterfront lined with palm trees, lovely boutiques and cafés. While the city oozes of opulence, there is much more to explore, especially for art and culture appreciators who can wander in the old town, or visit some of the numerous museums the city has to offer. The Musée d'Art et d'Histoire de Provence will enchant history lovers with artefacts dating back to the Prehistoric, while the Musée de la Castre holds objects from Pacific islands or Peru and will take visitors on a journey to distant lands. After spending the day sightseeing and capturing the essence of the Mediterranean city, visitors can relax in one of the quality apartments in Cannes and truly experience the city as locals.
When to go to Cannes
With its warm summers and mild winters, Cannes is a destination that can be enjoyed all year round. While tourists crowd the city between June and September to take advantage of the average temperature of 25°C, a late spring or early autumn trip is recommended, when temperatures are slightly lower but still pleasant enough to indulge in the beautiful and peaceful beaches. Thanks to a low rainfall and relatively mild temperatures between December and February, Cannes is also an ideal destination for winter city breaks.
