Inside the historic quarter, the Musee de la Castre it´s inside the remainings from the medieval castle. There you have a very good view to the city centre and the harbour.

Well worth a visit, not expensive either lovely view from the top. Lovely climb to the top especially through the old streets. Go up the long way via the restaurants , and turn to the left when you reach a small square.

The museum is located on the top of the old city of Cannes. They exhibit ancient pagan artifacts, findings from the middle east, old Egypt, Hellenistic and more.

A small cozy museum that has a little of everything. Climb the tower for the best views of Cannes! There is a range of topics within this museum and fascinating collection of old musical instruments.

By far the coolest part of this museum is the tower in the courtyard which affords an unobstructed 360 degree view... More
