Experience Cannes: what to see, what to do

Essentials in Cannes
Marche Forville: Cannes' covered market is a must if you're visiting this corner of France. Food, as you know, is one of the most impotent parts of French culture. Here you can taste and sample your way through, the variety will impress! You'll find the market on the western side of Rue Meynardiers.
Palais des Festivals: Venture down La Croisette to the famous Palais des Festivals where the rich and famous gather to watch the films during the festival. Don't miss the chance to pose at the bottom of the 22 steps leading up to it.
Beaches: Most of the beaches in Cannes are private and can cost up to €30 per day for entry. The city's public beaches are usually crowded so sometimes it's best to use your Cannes car hire to venture further outside the city for more space and prettier beaches.

Accommodations in Cannes
Cannes has plenty of hotels to choose from but in the summer season it can be very difficult to find a hotel in Cannes at the last minute. Always book your rooms as far in advance as possible and remember, Cannes is a small city that is easily walkable. Hotels further away from the coast will be cheaper and sometimes just a 10 minute walk away from the beach.
