The viewpoint in front of the church as well as next to the church provides one with panoramic views over the city and valleys. Do continue to the top, the view is worth it. It is not a massive climb and one can wind down back to town with an alternative road and explore the historic quarter to its fullest.... More

With a leisure walk up along the Suquet old town about 10 minutes from Cannes. Special rate for group size over 10 pax. Climb up the tower for a beautiful bird eye view over pretty Cannes. Quite many world ethnical collections and paintings on display.

This museum is truly a waste of space, and the collection has absolutely nothing to do with the region. The tour has a beautiful of Cannes, but the staircase leading up to the top is really horrific and dirty.

I did not go inside the museum so cannot comment on this. However, I can say it is still worth the visit just to get photos of the outside buildings.

Musee de la Castre is the historical ans ethnographic museum of Cannes. It has some collections of art from different parts of the world and from the region. It is an interesting museum, but it is not essential. Outside the Museum, you can see beautiful views of Cannes and the sea.

Great view from the church, but the museum is closed on Mondays. Still worth the walk up. Someone was playing violin in the square which added to the ambiance.

Excellent little museum stuffed with ethnographic relics from around the world, including a Persian permanent exhibition. Outside is almost more delightful, with a panoramic view of Cannes, the Alpes on a good day and the most delightful sea breeze. heaven with a busker too.

The castle sits at the top of the old town in Cannes (le Suquet) and the views from there are fabulous. The Castle is interesting - it houses art collections and antiquities from around the world. Even if you didn't actually enter the Castle it is still worth a visit for the views. Also at the top of the hill... More

If you're into sightseeing or photography then the 7€ admission might be worth it just to get to the top of the castle for the 360 view of Cannes. Stopped here while in port for a cruise and was able to get great aerial photos of the marina and cruise ship. As for the museum itself, it's not a museum... More

Supposed to visit the museum but instead of going inside we ended up just chilling outside the museum. The view from the top was just mesmerising. We just took in the beauty of Cannes from up above. Walking up the staircase was a delight cos the houses that you would walked past were all incredible. It was such a good... More
