When in Provence make sure to take a trip to Cannes

If you are planning a Provence holiday one location that should be high on your list is Cannes because this tourist resort is one of the most popular destinations in France with plenty to do for visitors from every corner of the globe.

While in town the beaches on Cannes are generally a great place to start because they offer a great place to relax after a long day of walking and sightseeing or just a great place to catch some of the suns rays. There are private and public beaches spread out throughout the area, but one of the most popular places to head is the Boulevard de la Croisette as this is where the best cafes are located.

Those who are more interested in the historical side of Cannes will want to head towards the old city centre of the city titled Le Suquet. Here you will find plenty of historical landmarks and buildings and you can easily spend a few hours just wondering around the antique streets.

Of course, the most famous activity that takes place in Cannes once a year is the Cannes Film Festival and if you happen to be around during the festival you will certainly want to buy a pass and stop by. However, even if you cannot take part in the festival you can visit the landmark where it takes place and see the many celebrity hand prints outside on the stones that have been left behind.

Finally, if you want to take a break from the glamour of Cannes you might want to wonder towards the Musee de la Mer where you can find some great archaeological collections featuring items from underneath the sea. In addition, there is a great exhibit on the ‘Man in the Iron Mask’ that will stun movie buffs.
