During your visit to Cannes, you will enjoy the mild Mediterranean climate on the Côte d'Azur. The Mediterranean city of about 75,000 inhabitants looks back on a rich past.
The Mediterranean beauty is also the main venue of the International Film Festival, which has been held annually in May on the Côte d'Azur since 1946.
In Cannes, you'll also have plenty of options for things to do and excursions to take. From museums to local markets, casinos and island trips to relaxing days on the beach, there's plenty to discover in Cannes.
One particular highlight is the Croisette, Cannes' two-kilometer beachfront promenade. Hotels, boutiques and restaurants stretch along the luxury mile. The Promenade de la Croisette is bustling with activity every day - a great experience for city travelers!
In the historic district of Cannes - Le Suquet - you will find winding streets and romantic squares, small and charming city hotels and wonderful accommodations.
The culinary highlight is the 3,000 square meter Marché Forville, which is only a few minutes walk from the Vieux Port. Immerse yourself in the typical atmosphere of a French market and enjoy regional specialties directly at the merchants' stalls.
The film festival was conceived on the initiative of the French Minister of Education and Culture, Jean Zay. The festival started on October 5, 1946 - today the Cannes International Film Festival is one of the most important film festivals in the world!
The award is given annually by a newly composed international jury. Directors and artists are honored for their work. The fantastic ambience of the historic old town and the wonderful promenade La Croisette give the film festival a very special flair!
