As an enthusiast of the history of the Second Empire, and as a friendly city girl, I love Cannes, which brings together everything I adore.... I will be happy to share "my" district, La Croisette and the ports, and this quality of life with our visitors... See you soon!
Architectural Treasures Tour
Discover the town through its streets in the company of our enthusiastic residents. From the Middle Ages to the Roaring Twenties, Cannes boasts some architectural treasures. The stone secrets of the Lérins Abbey, Fort Royal or Notre-Dame-de-l'Espérance church overlooking the Bay of Cannes… Be charmed by the alleys of Le Suquet, blooming with bougainvilleas… Did you know that in the 19th century, Cannes became one of the preferred holiday destinations of the European aristocracy? Relive the spirit of an era through the Town Hall, the famous hotels on La Croisette and the superb villas of the California district.
I invite you on a stroll along La Croisette, from the famous steps of the Palais des Festivals to the gardens of the Roseraie. You will thus discover its palaces, its old Belle Epoque villas, its luxury shops and the Bay of Cannes with its unimpeded view of the Estérel mountain range.
I invite you on a walk through the narrow alleyways of the old town, where a preserved past is revealed. The authentic charm of this district will lead us to the magnificent panorama over the bay of Cannes and the Esterel to discover the beating heart of Cannes.
Spread throughout the town, there are many wall frescoes, inspired by the silver screen, allowing for a stroll through the history of cinema in an entertaining way and, in just two hours, to traverse all the facets of Cannes, from La Croisette to Le Suquet, via Rue Meynadier and Rue d'Antibes.
