Overview

Living the high life

Cannes rolls out the red carpet for you

Sleek, sunny and celebrity-studded, Cannes is a French Riviera city and a curving crescent of beaches, designer shops, Art Deco architecture and weather-beaten pétanque players wedged between the Mediterranean and the back-county hills.

About France

The glamorous side of Cannes can be admired by visiting the "Palais des Festivals et des Congrès" or by being present at its world-famous movie Festival. You can also discover the old town on top of the famous hill of Le "Suquet" where you can visit the ramparts and the Museum de la Castre, ideally housed in the ruins of a medieval castle.

Take the opportunity to appreciate the amazing view over the city, the port, the Croisette and the Lérins Islands. At the foot of the old town, enjoy shopping in the Forville market or in the main artery: the Antibes street.

Finally, go for a walk along the Old Port full of old rigs and yachts.

    Good Trip |
    "We had a very pleasant trip from Cannes to Paris. The train was comfortable and the seats had plenty of room. The only issue we had was understanding the process at the station in Cannes. We were originally told by the "Information Officers" at Cannes Station that taking our luggage on board would "not be possible", however we had pre-booked first class seats. Once we figured out the system and understood where our seats would be on which carriage on the station platform, we simply moved to that point and boarded the train when it arrived. It might help if some of this information could be explained on the e-mail ticket which we had printed out as the "Information Officers" did not seem that helpful, nor could they understand English. Once on the train the trip was very enjoyable and we would use the service again. "

    Cannes to Paris |
    "The direct TGV to Paris is so easy, cheaper than taking a flight, and takes about the same time. And one gets to see France. It is recommended that you take a snack with you though because the line up to buy food in the buffet car can be long if travelling at meal times. "
