Le Suquet is situated just opposite the old port in Cannes. Parking is easy in the underground car park under the Casino (make a note of where you park!!) It is part of the 'old town' and is mainly restaurants and a few souvenir shops. The choice of restaurants is extensive, so it is worth walking to the very top... More

Le Suquet is the old part of Cannes above the original harbour. It was the home of the fishermen and their families. It is on a steep hill and the most popular way up is via the Rue de Antoine which starts behind the bus station. It is old and quaint and many of the houses have been converted to... More

Very impressed by this old part of Cannes with quaint houses, restaurants and a small marina with fishing boats. It is popular with tourists and usually very busy! There is a walk way where you can go up the hill to visit the Notre Dame Cathedral with the impressive clock tower and get a panoramic view of Cannes. You can... More

Wonderful winding streets with old houses, shops and restaurants leading up to the ramparts with beautiful views across Cannes. Not to be missed.

It is hard not to fall for the charm of the Le Suquet part of Cannes, except when it is really busy or when winter has set in and it is a bit too quiet on the Rue St Antoine.. The Marché Forville is a lovely old style covered market with beautifully displayed flowers, fruit & veg, cheese, charcuterie and... More

Such a charming and picturesque place. Many quaint restaurants, museum and open market.Le Suquet will give you the best view of Cannes. On the way to this place, you can walk through the old ville of Cannes, then when you reach the top, it's just stunning. Definitely one of the best areas to explore in Cannes!

Wander around and see some of the gable end wall murals they are hard to find but worth it. There is a mural walk, but with the modernisation of certain areas especially the station(gare) these are no reduced in number.

We took the slow, long but gradual path to the panoramic lookout point which passes shops and restaurants. On the way down, we walked the many steps which ended near one of the main bus stations at a building with a beautiful mural. Several bus tours stop here as well as the little white train. At the top, there is... More

The area is interesting, combining the stroll along the rising road and the visit to the castle with its scenic view. Along the rising road , rather steep, there is a plethora of restaurants of any kind and sort, bars and meeting places, making it one of the most picturesque areas in Cannes.
