The best things to do in Cannes



Besides the movies and films for which this city is famous, there's a lot of stuff to do in Cannes. The city is also known for its coastline, pleasant temperatures, and the relaxed and elegant atmosphere that can be found at any time of year.

One of the many places to visit in Cannes is the Boulevard de La Croisette, with paved terraces to sit and relax on. The image of the full patio of people chatting while enjoying the breeze is of the best-known scenes of the city. But the city has much more than just glamour. Founded more than 2,000 years ago, there are many attractions in Cannes which are reminiscent of its past. Tourists interested in historical Cannes activities can admire Roman ruins and visit the city's castle, which was used as a prison during the French Revolution. And these are just a couple of the many historical Cannes attractions.

A visit to La Suquet, the old town, is another of the things to do in Cannes. The narrow streets and stairways transport the traveler to another era, long before skyscrapers and luxury hotels came to this city. La Isla Santa Margarita is one of the most unusual things to see in Cannes. The island was the setting of the story of the Man in the Iron Mask, who is said to have finally managed to escape after 11 years locked up.

If you're still wondering what to do in Cannes, have a look at the opinions of Minube users who've visited this beautiful city.
