Towns nearby

Glamorous, glitzy Cannes is famous for its film festival and designer boutiques, grand hotels and palm- lined boulevards. Cannes is very easy to get to as it sits on the major trainline that runs all along the Riviera, linking it with Nice, Monaco, Marseilles and also with the TGV to Paris. (Note that there is no train station at Nice airport so you'll have to either walk or take a bus to the train station at St Laurent du Var.) An express bus (210) runs from Nice airport to Cannes, and there is a good local bus network from smaller towns.

Restaurants nearby

Unsurprisingly given its glitzy reputation, Cannes has some seriously good dining on offer-for all budgets. We've got a detailed restaurant guide for you to check out here, but if you just want to wander until something strikes your fancy, Cannes is the town to do it - the narrow street running up the hill to the old town has some atmospheric restaurants, La Croisette boasts some brilliant terrace restaurants for people-watching, and Quai St. Pierre by the port is the place to head for a selection of seafood restaurants.

Sights nearby

When it comes to sights worth seeing, Cannes is probably better known for its belle epoque hotels and festival halls than its historical monuments. Yet if you head away from the red carpet and casinos to the old town of Le Suquet, you'll find a touch of its medieval history in its 12th century church, Notre-Dame-de-l'Espérence and Tour de Mt. Chevalier. There are some nice views to be had over the coast from the ramparts up here too.

Things to Do nearby

Of all the activities on offer in Cannes, one of the best (and definitely the cheapest) is to spend an hour or two strolling along the famed Croisette boulevard under the palms- past the grand white hotels and Palais de Festival building, past the beautiful sailing yachts clustered in the old port, and around the corner to the beach boardwalk. There are two daily markets to explore and a flea market each Saturday (also Sundays on the first weekend of the month.) For those craving nature and beauty, hop on one of the ferries over to the 'Cannes Islands'- Ille de Saint Honorat and Ille Saint Margherite. You can also catch a ferry to glamorous St Tropez from Cannes.

Beaches nearby

Cannes has several beaches to choose from, from non-smoking public beaches to glamorous private beach clubs with deckchairs, DJ's and flowing champagne. There are watersports galore, as well as beach volleyball courts that are busy long into the summer evenings. See our beach pages for details.

Golf-clubs nearby

The closest golf course to Cannes is the Old Course at Mandelieu-la-Napoule, which is the oldest course on the Riviera. If you want to tread the greens with the celebrities, head inland to the world-class Cannes-Mougins Golf Club in the rolling hills (but remember your wallet-green fees will set you back 120-200 euro.) One thing the Riviera certainly isn't short of is golf clubs; see our Golfing Pages for other options.

Nightlife nearby

As you’d expect, there’s no shortage of things to do at night in this town, whether you’re in the mood for a louche piano bar, exclusive nightclub or relaxed Irish pub. Dress up for the occasion at one of the three famous casinos, catch a concert or head to one of the superclubs to dance the night away under the palms. See our nightlife guide for the best of the vibrant Cannes nightlife.
