This is the old part of Cannes complete with narrow winding streets, cobbled together houses, and little restaurants popping up as you get closer to the main strip. This area is old and full of charm. I highly recommend taking the time to walk through this area. Walk up to the top for a great overlook of the city. You... More

It is part of the old town and is filled with beautifully decorated restaurants in the open along small winding roads. The choice of restaurants is extensive, so it is worth walking to the very top of the steep hill, before making your choice of where to eat. It is advisable to reach this place before peak eating hours, as... More

A good place to get a little exercise while enjoying the older section of Cannes. You need to go to the top and check out the view. A test: See if you can find the mask of the "Man in the Iron Mask" fame. It's on a building on the way to the top. Tip: If you are going to... More

Le Suquet is the old quarter of Cannes and the original fishermen’s residential area, the houses are all very old, and the streets were laid out at least 400 years ago. The area is probably best known as the climbing, winding cobbled lanes of Rue Saint Antoine and Rue du Suquet, originally the main road into Cannes. There is a... More

This is the original part of Cannes with a steep path going up the hill where there are very qood views from the old castle ramparts. It is charming with no traffic and another route to the top is through some terraced gardens. It is spoilt by the mostly tourist trap restaurants along the road, but you can just ignore... More

The three years I went to Cannes, this has been my favourite place - after the gruelling marketing sessions and the award ceremonies, this place is paradise with its street restaurants, fine dining in the open, resplete with magnificient set ups and decor, quaint winding roads, cute little shops tucked away, musicians playing while you enjoy your candlelight dinner, it's...

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
