Day 1: Arrival in Cannes
Luxury Private Transfer from Nice Airport to Hotel in Cannes

Welcome to Cannes
Cannes enjoys an international reputation. It has welcomed the great and good of this world for nearly two centuries. It is also home to the most famous film festival.
It’s not all frivolity – an obsession with red carpets and evening gowns. It has a more serious side too – busy with business events for a large portion of the year. It has a reputation for being a modern, cosmopolitan, fashion trendsetter which is undoubtedly true! But it has also lovingly preserved its roots and its traditions, an authenticity that can be enjoyed by the visitors that slip away from the Croisette to savoir the picturesque charm of a Mediterranean city.
The hill of the “Suquet” is where Cannes began. We suggest you start your tour of Cannes with the old town. You can reach it from various angles, taking steeply sloping narrow streets, crisscrossed with picturesque flights of winding steps where the pedestrian is king. Visit the ramparts, the Musée de la Castre, the square tower, and the church. Admire the view over the city, the port, the Croisette, the Iles de Lérins, and a substantial portion of the Bay of Cannes, Forville market with its rows of food shops (butchers, fishmongers, bakers, wine merchants, etc). The old port unfurls below the Suquet.
The cool early morning is the perfect time to take a look around the Forville market. The fragrance of thyme, verbena, and basil fills the air. The market sellers sing out the virtues of local produce in their lilting accent: tomatoes, olive oil, freshly-caught fish, tasty aniseed biscuits… A stroll around Forville market is like exploring the whole of Provence, taking a delicious journey steeped in the atmosphere of the South.
