Cannes is one of the most glamorous cities in the world, dazzling visitors year-round on the French Riviera. It's most famous for the Cannes Film Festival, which has beckoned international stars to the Côte d'Azur for more than 70 years. The event will ignite the Mediterranean shore with excitement once again when it returns May 8-19. So book your luxury jet charter and get ready to see stars of every variety.
Picture yourself in Cannes
The Cannes Film Festival is an industry event in which you can see top films by making a quick trip to the Cannes Tourism Office. Always happy to accommodate visitors, the office hands out schedules for the Cinéma de la Plage, an enormous outdoor movie screen. People often pack blankets, wine and cheese to watch films on the beach at Plage Mace as twilight descends overhead.
When you need to stretch your legs, there are plenty of places to shop for movie souvenirs, though the official Cannes shop is set up near the Majestic Barriere Hotel on La Croisette — a boulevard that runs along the Mediterranean shoreline up to the Rue d’Antibes. La Croisette overlooks the sea on one side and is lined with palatial hotels like the Carlton, the Martinez and the Cannes Intercontinental on the other.
La Croisette teems with outdoor cafes and upscale shops that specialize in festival keepsakes along with premium brands such as Ferrari, Gucci and Christian Lacroix. The hotels provide sun-loungers and umbrellas, so tourists can relax on private beaches while sipping cocktails and engaging in the irresistible Cannes sport of celebrity-watching.
