“Should be #1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

To me, this was the best part of Cannes. Lovely old section of the otherwise 80s reminiscent town. Lovely cobblestone streets, restaurants and cafes with outdoor seating for people watching, shops to browse, and french architecture to enjoy. Short (not even that strenuous as noted in some other comments) walk to the top for a great 360 view of Cannes.

“Wow what a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Just consider driving else the walk is quite the climb so bring plenty of water as it a workout. Well worth the walk and climb as the pictures you will take our real keepers

“Great old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This old quarter of Cannes has lots of little cobbled streets with bars, restaurants and shops to roam through and fantastic views across the port and the town of Cannes. On Rue Dr. P. Gazagnaire is the Marché Forville, where the produce market is held in the mornings and early afternoon (except on Monday's when it hosts a second hand and antiques market).
of restaurants around the Rue Saint Antoine and the Rue du Suquet. A lot of the area is pedestrianised and is a major tourist attraction for visitors to Cannes.

“Worth the walk!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

The view of Cannes from the top of the old town is well worth the climb. Some lovely shops on the way up there too.

“Beautiful views in this great old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The beautiful views on top of Le Suquet made the walk uphill worthwhile. The narrow streets were full with little shops, mementos from movies and flowers making the climb to the top quite an experience!
