Cruise to Cannes—Because We Can-Can-Cannes!

Lights, camera, Cannes! Perhaps best known for the eponymous film festival that happens ever year, this charming port has plenty more to see than just celebrities and socialites. (Though, keep your eyes peeled because you never know who might be driving those Ferraris and Maseratis!)

Get ready for your close-up with a stroll along Le Promenade de la Croisette, the place to see and been seen in Cannes. Find the perfect pair of oversized sunglasses in one of the many luxury boutiques (Prada, anyone?) and then sit back and people watch with a glass of rosé at a chic waterfront café.

To see more of this seaside paradise, head to Le Suquet (the old town) to traverse winding cobblestone streets and zigzagging staircases. Gourmands will want to head for rue Meynardiers for shops carrying delicacies like creamy Brie and colorful macarons. The street also leads to Marché Forville, a covered market, where you’ll find local fig jam, charcuterie, and fresh flowers to tempt your senses.
