The jewel in the already glittering crown of the Cote D’Azur, Cannes is a luxury resort that attracts movie stars and the high society – and those wishing to spot them. A top resort since the 19th century, when the British aristocracy first started holidaying here, to this day Cannes is the first spot travellers want to see when visiting the French Riviera. Its landscape is beautiful: the beachfront and promenade are in typically classy French style. And due to its location at the very foot of France, the weather remains hot here throughout the year. But the main reason most tourists book flights to Cannes is because of its annual film festival, and the accompanying stars who arrive and holiday here.
Away from the festival, there is still plenty to see and do in the city. Most tourists arriving from a Cannes flight want to visit the sandy beaches, promenade through the town’s streets and take in some shopping. The restaurants here are also impressive and the nightclubs and bars stay open until the early hours.
