Cannes, France Cruises

Famous for expensive shopping, fleets of privately-owned yachts and a list of celebrity tourists as renowned as the designer stores they come to visit, Cannes is an A-list city on the south coast of France. Always a popular destination for cruises, tourists can step off their luxury liners and explore its extravagant streets. From fashionable shopping to heady nightlife, there's plenty to see on an outing in Cannes.

Sightseeing in Cannes

While the city of Cannes might be well known for having expensive tastes, it doesn't disappoint when it comes to its cultural and modern tourist attractions. Its history dates back to the 2nd Century, when the original settlement grew into an international trading post. The city is littered with old buildings, some dating back to the early 1800's, and it's frequently used as a location for major motion movies. Here are some popular tourist locations you really must check out:

Île Ste-Marguerite

This tiny island, sitting off the south point of Cannes and less than two miles long, was once home to the Man in the Iron Mask, locked up in the fort in the 17th Century. Celebrated in writing and in film, the island can be visited on day trips from the mainland.

Plage du Gray d'Albion

Even in Cannes, a day on the beach is a luxury outing. Here at Plage du Gray d'Albion, the private sandy beach is open only to residents of top class hotels, or to tourists who choose to pay an entry fee. Once on the beach, a carpet leads towards the sea, and luxury sun loungers are lined up in perfectly level rows. Jet skiing and other water sports can be booked right here.

Le Palais

Staying in the port at Cannes for a whole night? One of the world's most famous nightclubs, Le Palais, is right on your doorstep. Boasting celebrity clientele that puts the Film Festival to shame, this is a local hotspot that's well worth a visit.

Shopping in Cannes

Where better to enjoy some retail therapy than in one of the world's most exclusive shopping locations? Undeniably ostentatious, and with shops whose price tags range from the reasonable to the ridiculous, hours can be spent exploring the malls and arcades of this vibrant coastal town.

Marche Forville is located on the coast and lays claim to the title of Cannes' most popular food market. Featuring locally caught fish and seafood every day, it's also a great place to pick up popular French wines, cheeses and herbs, and an ideal place to buy picnic food if you plan to spend a day on the beach.

For some uber-trendy shopping that won't give your wallet a fright, head to LaFayette Galleries in the heart of Cannes where fashionable clothing for the whole family is a speciality. The Galleries also sell some great accessories, home ware and speciality foods.

Eating out in Cannes

Restaurants in Cannes are often fine-dining, with seafood a popular favourite. There are plenty of small and local cafes here, but high end gastronomy is what this city is famous for. Next time your cruise pulls into Cannes port, why not step off your ship and enjoy a wonderful dinner at the Sofitel Hotel overlooking the dock? Serving modern French cuisine at its rooftop restaurant, you can enjoy some exquisite food with impressive views.
