Cannes is a destination that is often in the limelight as it is a mecca of the 7th art. This small fishing village has not lost its bucolic side. With an exceptional natural heritage and outstanding cultural events, the seaside resort is not lacking in assets. We tell you here what to visit in Cannes and the surrounding area:
La Croisette has become the most famous road on the whole of the Côte d'Azur and can be visited in the shade of its palm trees, under the gaze of its palaces and in the unique atmosphere of its Art Deco style buildings.
You can shop in its luxury boutiques, but not without first discovering the footprints left on the way to the stars for the simple pleasure of remembering the best actors and directors of our time.
When you've had your fill of all the glamour and glitz, consider diving into the maritime scenery of Cannes by heading to the Lerins Islands, for example.
Beaches and nature
If you ask a connoisseur what to visit in and around Cannes, chances are they will say the beaches.
After all, your destination is a famous seaside resort. You can choose between private and public beaches, the latter being located either along La Croisette itself or on the Boulevard du Midi side.
Cannes and its surroundings are also nature, the Provençal atmosphere in the flower market of the Allées de la Liberté if not its weekend flea market.
Also consider a visit to the Croix-des-Gardes park, a natural setting, but also a walking area, to be enjoyed along its twenty kilometres of marked paths.
The old quarter
Finally, to complete your programme to answer the question of what to visit in and around Cannes, don't miss the Suquet, the oldest district of the city and its historic heart.
You can also take a stroll through the unique atmosphere of the old port before returning to our hotel, which is also a wonderful experience in itself, between Cannes and Mandelieu.
As an illustration, you will be only 300 metres from the sea and a few kilometres from the Esterel.
The Hotel Mercure Cannes Mandelieu is the most convenient and comfortable place to enjoy the jewels of the French Riviera.
