Private Cannes Walking Tour

Your Cannes half-day private walking tour starts in the area of the Old Port and Old Cannes called "Le Suquet," two of the most picturesque parts of town. It is easy to lose your way among the labyrinth of back streets, quaint passageways and pretty little squares, and your guide will show you the highlights of this area. Climbing to the top of the Suquet Hill, you will have panoramic views of Cannes and the surrounding area. This is also the location of the Musee de la Castre, sheltered in a 12th-century castle which once belonged to the monks of the Lerins Islands. Also on Le Suquet is the eglise Notre-Dame-d'Esperance, which dates back to the 17th century. The church is renowned for its thanksgiving plaques created by locals, as a tribute to the Virgin Mary who answered their prayers.

Continue with a short sightseeing along the famous Promenade de la Croisette (Avenue of the Little Cross), a prominent road that stretches along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Both luxury hotels and very exclusive shops line this elegant promenade, bordered by palm trees and gardens. This is the brand image of Cannes.

Surrounded by the pavement of fame where hand prints of famous movie stars are immortalized, lies the "Palais des Festivals," home of the prestigious Film Festival, taking place every year in May.

Time at leisure for shopping on the Rue d'Antibes, the main shopping area in town, will be taken before your guide leads you back to the pier. Guests have the option to remain in town and walk back to the pier later on their own.
