Went to see the palais just for the red carpet experience. Took some photos and posed like a famous star . That was all really. Weekend was packed so you won't be able to have the red carpet on your own like hollywood stars do.

Not as you would expect from looking at the TV, if in the area have a look otherwise don't go out of your way.

Visited here with a group of friends and we posed in front of this Palais. A few seconds of celeb status!!. Red carpet was still there, so it was wonderful to make a grand entrance!. Worth seeing all the celebrities during the Cannes Festival

The Palais is a squared dirty concrete building. BUT the old town is beautiful and not at all crowded! Head towards the old city instead! You can park right at the Palais under ground, and walk from there.

Across the road from JW Marriot, you might not get to see how big the structure is but when you get closer just a Lil away from the Louis Vuitton store you realise how massive it is. Upon entrance you are exposed to a large auditorium that grants access to different areas of the palais. The view of the beach... More
