Your tour to Cannes, Antibes, and Nice starts at the cruise port, where your officially licensed English-speaking guide waits for you with an adapted vehicle. Your first stop is Cannes, where you see the famous Palais du festival with its 22 steps of fame and the red carpet.
Palais du Festival is a very famous landmark located on the boulevard. It is the Cannes congress building where the world-famous Cannes Film Festival is held every year. Every year the Golden Palm is awarded here, a film prize awarded to the best film of the year. Stars, movies, and actors then dominate the whole of Cannes at this time of the year. Palais du Festival is very modern and exudes a lot of luxury. In addition to the film festival, other conferences and trade fairs are also held in this building. There is a famous square in front of the structure, which is tiled with handprints of various famous stars.
After you saw the Palais du Festival, you continue your Cannes, Antibes, and Nice tour over the two-kilometer long Boulevard de La Croissette. A beautiful boulevard that runs along the coast of Cannes. The promenade starts at the Palais du Festivals and runs through the city’s marina. Along the route, you see many famous hotels where all the celebrities, journalists, and filmmakers stay during the film festival. The avenue de la Croisette is seen by many as one of the sights that you must visit in Cannes!
After a short drive, you arrive at Antibes. Your driver drops you off at the entrance of this medieval town that is surrounded by fortifications from the 14th and 16th centuries. After walking through some winding streets, you end up at the covered market. A cozy market with many local products. Indulge yourself with goods from the region, buy souvenirs, and try new things.
In Antibes, you have the option to visit the Picasso museum (price not included.) Picasso has lived and painted a lot in Antibes. The museum houses a number of his works, but also other painters such as Joan Miró, Nicolas de Staël, Anna-Eva Bergman, and Hans Hartung. A must-visit for art-lovers who are in the neighborhood.
When you soaked up the beauty of Antibes, it is time to hop back in the car to go to Nice. You see the residential neighborhoods. Then you go along the famous Promenade des Anglais to end up in the old town with a multitude of baroque buildings.
After you saw Nice, it is time to head back to the cruise port or accommodation where your tour ends. For more information about the accessibility in Cannes, Nice, and the rest of the south of France, read this blog post.
