“a bit old but still glamorous”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

a bit old but still glamorous. it is nice to sit across from the palais during the film festival, have a glass of campaign and check out which starlets enter the theater. you do get the fill that the palais is from a bygone area, but then who cars.... it is cannes and it is chic.

“Location of the Cannes Film Festival”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Although it was not festival time, we visited the place for some photo op. The weather wasn't too great, so ended up not enjoying the walk as much as we liked, but still were happy to have visited the place.

“Red carpet opportunity”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Well, you just have to get in line to get the photo of you on the famous red carpet to the Grand Auditorium. It is a must, whether you like it or not. Just do it!

“Very good”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Very good walk. The palais des Festivals was not so glamorous as I thought. Lots of celebrities handprints was in reparation. But qf course I took the picture in the "red carpet".
