If you have heard about the Cannes film festival, this place is good to visit once...the main theatre was closed when we visited(gearing up for the festival in May end).. but a nice photo op on the stairs, the Cannes red carpet.. good way to feel glamorous :) and just outside you have the finger prints of famous artists.. good fun to recognise some of them.

Travelled from Nice to Cannes (appro 6-7 euro one way 30 mins journey) by train which is convenient and faster (bus costs less 1-2 euro but takes over 2 hours) its a small town but the marina is worth the walk and nice to see a new place.

Visited the casino and played some poker. I was there for about one and a half hours and was not offered a drink, not did I see a waitress. Very poor service indeed.

If in Cannes, do not miss this site. Wether during the festival or not I think it is a great attraction to visit. After our little trip around the Cannes we stopped for a quick look around. Unless participant of the festival, I guess it is one of the things one visits to tick box "I was there", but well worth it. Check award plates, soak some sun walking along nearby plage and enjoy jetset lifestyle, if in need of directions, refer to nearby helpful map. We did! Loved it!

This is site of film festival and cool to do a quick stop here. Not too much to see if off season and I would recommedn to go and spen just an hour or two so you can say you were there. We focused on the out side and saw some of the awards step plaques. We were glad we stopped nto good for kids.
