About the sights in Cannes
There are a wealth of places to visit in Cannes, from top class art museums to the remains of ancient chapels and of course the famous vineyards. Many of the highlights are in Cannes itself, but to see the best a car, bike or moped is recommended.
Thanks to the varied history of Cannes, you will find reminders of the pre-historic times, Romans and of course the English throughout the region, from expensive villas and amazing architecture to ruins, churches and art. Much of this history is documented in a number of museums.
But it is not just man-made artefacts that are worth seeking out. Cannes is blessed with fabulous scenery, from the coastline of the French Riviera to the rolling hills inland. A number of Natural Parks have been created, which provide not only protection to the land but informative guides and trails to follow, a popular place for walking and biking.
Cannes is home to a vibrant arts scene as evidenced by the number of excellent art galleries and museums found throughout. Historical art collections as well as contemporary can be seen across the region, and not forgetting of course those artists who were resident in the area such as Picasso, Signac, Matisse and Renoir.
