Stopped here for 10-15 minutes while on the land train tour. Didn't have time to explore the buildings but you get an excellent view of Cannes and the surrounding areas

This is a very nice but still nearby getaway from the public crowds during the festival (which was when I was in Cannes). Definitely worth exploring further since it's so beautiful. One of the most beautiful views over Cannes!

This museum has a fantastic collection of pieces from all over the world. You can normally climb the tower but at the moment they are doing renovations so the tower was closed and only four rooms were open. Still worth a visit.
