Cannes can be busy, particularly when a large Congress or exhibition fills the streets with visitors. On the whole while it lacks the charm of Antibes, le Suquet is its crown, literally on top of the town. I once counted the steps, but have forgotten the number but it is a formidable climb the local tourist bus can take you... More

The old town of Cannes. Up a steep hill but it is worth it. You see houses that go back to the sixteenth and the seventeenth century; some of them have very low arched doors. The views from the top are spectacular.

Anyone visiting Cannes should NOT miss Le Suquet. In fact, the visit should start here with the fabulous view of the bay, the city and the Lerins Islands from the top of Le Suquet, above Notre Dame de l'Esperance Church or the terrace of the le Musée de la Castre (both well worth a visit as well). The Romans chose... More

Lovely old part of Cannes with smaller winding streets leading to the top of the hill. At the top you will find the a museum set in an old Chapel / Fortress with fabulous views of the whole city of Cannes. There are some abandoned cannons and a small rampart. You can also get up here with the Cannes Tour... More

Great place to have a cocktail, glass of wine, and mainly full of very good restaurants. Michelin star and michelin recommended restaurants as well as cheaper options for those on a budget. Great street, typical french!

Impressive old quarter of Cannes. Beautiful architecture. Many interesting shops and restaurants. Outstanding photo opportunities overlooking the harbour and the city of Cannes. On a sunny January day, we had the place to ourselves.

The historical district or quarter is best viewed on foot. Here one will find Italian alike buildings, with shutters and sitting tightly on the pavements of narrow, winding streets. Climb the steps and explore the short walking tour independently on foot. All the sights are clearly marked. Get lost in the small network of streets; savour the views, the monuments,... More

We picked a shortest route from the town center at advice of locals and a couple of tourists who just came down. It looked very steep but turned out not bad at all. The view from the top was really worth the climb. We rested on the bench enjoying the over the roof view of the town, marina and the... More

No visit to Cannes is complete without walking around this area and getting a feel for how locals live. Often cool and shady in the heat of summer and boasts some really good restaurants too.
