Day 7
Cannes – Arrive: 8:00 AM – Depart: 6:00 PM
Once the site of a small Ligurian port and later a Roman outpost, it wasn’t until the 19th century, when aristocrats began to winter in the area’s mild climate, that Cannes became popular. It is said that due to the area’s few natural harbors, most ancient activity took place on the Lenin Islands, just off the coast of Cannes. Consequently the history of Cannes is mixed with the history of the islands. In the 1950’s, with the beginning of the film festival and a flood of stars, mass tourism transformed this quiet retreat into today’s fashionable resort. Unlike other cities on the French Riviera, Cannes radiates energy. The city is centered on the old port, with a compact central part. Bordered by palm trees and flowers, La Croisette is one of the city’s hottest spots and the main promenade running alongside the narrow beach. The old town, Le Suquet, where Gallo-Roman tombs were discovered, provides a medieval feeling and magnificent views of the bay from atop its hill.
