The rich and famous come from all over the world to participate in the elite Cannes Film Festival, which honours filmmakers the world over. Stroll down the elegant promenades, visit the organised beaches, view the expensive yachts in the harbour or just people watch in the pavement cafes.
Points of interest in the city include the Church of Notre Dame d'Esperance (15th century); the Lycklama Museum, which has a fine collection of antiquities; and the Promenade de la Croisette, a street lined with luxury hotels and shops. On a nearby island in the Mediterranean is the Abbey of Lerins, a noted centre of learning in the 5th century. From Cannes you can also visit the Picasso Museum, Antibes, Nice, St tropez, Port Grimaud, Eze and Monte Carlo.
