Welcome to Cannes


Whether Cannes' soul has managed to survive its celebrity-playground status is another question, but there’s still enough natural beauty to make a trip worthwhile: the harbour, the bay, the clutch of offshore islands and the old quarter, Le Suquet, all spring into life on a sunny day. And with the city's famous beaches benefiting from a serious facelift in 2019, there's suddenly lots more space to lay your towel!
