Cannes

Region: Cote dAzure
Monuments:

Now famous as the home of the Film Festival, Cannes was established as a seaside resort by the British aristocracy in the early 1800’s when British Lord Chancellor Lord Brougham gathered together investors to construct the port and the magnificent palace hotels.

Behind the palm lined seafront - La Croissete and its hotels, casinos and restaurants there is excellent shopping in Rue D’Antibes. Other restaurants, particularly those specializing in seafood can be found overlooking and behind the Viex Port, the main yacht marina which is also used by trip boats.

An interesting excursion is to take a 15 minute boat ride from the port to the Isle of Lerins - Ile de Ste Marguerite and St Honarat et Les saints de Lerins . Besides being the religious center of the south of France, Ile Ste Mruerite also houses the prison where the mysterious man in the Iron Mask was incarcerated during the 17th century.
