Cannes, a port unlike any other in the world

An exceptional setting, in the heart of the city

The Old Port of Cannes is an entry point to Le Suquet, this picturesque, quintessentially Provençal neighbourhood with a rich architectural heritage. In the shade of the old buildings, you will delight in wandering through its narrow streets, dating back to medieval times. Enjoy the shaded square and the Notre-Dame d’Espérance Church, visit the Castre Museum or admire the view from the castle overlooking the hill. Or you may prefer a spot of window-shopping, taking in the famous luxury boutiques that line the Croisette, or trying your luck in one of the casinos. If all that seems like hard work, you can always relax and unwind on one of Cannes’ sunny beaches.
