The excursion to Cannes includes
Visit to Rue Meynadier

It connects the modern city with the old town of Suquet. Formerly the main street of the city of Cannes, Rue Meynadier has kept its picturesque atmosphere, and today hosts many food and souvenir shops. You can shop for delicious cheeses, fresh local pasta and other local products.

The Forville market

Famous for its local products, you will discover its colourful stalls, where the restaurants of Cannes come to stock up on fresh produce, and you will be able to admire the old houses with the ancient doors which border the Place du Marché.

Le Suquet, old town of Cannes

It offers a viewpoint of the incredible panorama, from where you can admire the Palais des Festivals, the Croisette and the Lérins Islands. You will then visit the church of Notre Dame de l’Espérance, built in 1627 in the Provencal Gothic style.

The Palais des Festivals de Cannes

Probably the most famous in the world, which has hosted the Cannes Film Festival since 1946. Like the Hollywood stars, you will have the opportunity to take a picture of yourself on its famous steps, before taking the boat to discover one of the other treasures of Cannes.

The Lérins Islands

Your visit will continue with a short boat trip to reach the Lérins Islands. Founded by the monk Honorat and his sister Marguerite, whose names they bear. The island of Saint-Honorat and the island of Sainte-Marguerite are home to beautiful beaches and forests, but also the famous Fort Royal, which has housed the dungeon of the iron mask, whose identity has remained secret since the 17th century .

Strengthen your French practice

Your day of discovery in Cannes with Azurlingua will allow you to alternate between heritage and glamour, but will especially be a social time, during which you will reinforce your French practice and your knowledge of our culture.
