String out opposite the Palace Film, there are the finest luxury stores, whose prices skyrocketing only urges you not to shoot windows, and do not go hand in your wallet. Hotels were designed in order to fit the tastes of the most demanding personalities. The rest of the world comes to Cannes to raise their prizes are also drawn from tales of palaces: the towers, gates locked, with butler style.

Otherwise, the same construction as in any other city on the Cote d’Azur: the beachfront is reached, slowly, toward the hill that hides the secret history of the city, or even France. But the similarity with the rest of the hills of southern France enters the monotony, up towards uniqueness and disclosure: for example, Camp Castle and the Tower hide in their hearts famous Iron Mask, a true legend of the world. So get on the hill, you must discern the small streets that stretch with timidity.

From above the city, you can see how beautiful Cannes is: the right side always includes big smiles gleaming in the sun caresses the beach is out with so much grace, always invaded by seagulls and waves of fine touch, and palm trees of neat buildings guard all the riches inside this place.

In summer, a delightful way to discover the city is the tourist train (Le Petit Train du Cinema), which leaves every hour near the Palais des Festivals (Hotel Majestic) and will take you through the hottest spots in town. Adult ticket costs EUR 7 and EUR 3 for children ages 3 to 10 years and you can choose between two routes, both lasting for 35 minutes: the historical, passing through the old medieval town, the old port, and Le Forville market camp, or route Croisette, the Rue d’Antibes passes, Port Canto, Palm Beach, casinos and the city’s most beautiful beaches. It is possible to combine the two routes in a ride that lasts for an hour, with guidance provided in 8 languages.
