The city’s overflowing with glitz and glamour, and you’ll feel like a celebrity as you strut around the streets. Luxury is the name of the game here, with ornate casinos and gorgeous boutiques lining the boulevards. The Promenade de la Croisette is a beautiful avenue by the waterfront.

The modern metropolis is a sought-after holiday spot for celebrities from all walks of fame. And can you blame them? Take a wander along the harbour and see all of the pretty, gleaming white yachts lined up. You might just catch a glimpse of regular A-listers exploring or sun-soaking.

If you head down to Palm Beach, you’ll find more than just shimmering sand. In the light, the shoreline welcomes sunbathers with their midday cocktails. As night creeps in, the beach morphs into a bass-filled platform for superstar DJs and clubbing events. You might not be able to resist a flutter at Palm Beach Casino.

Sightseeing
The cobbled old quarter is wonderful for walks, with its clock tower and church. But there’s plenty more beyond these streets. There’s a lengthy promenade for staggering views, plus the convention centre that celebrates and hosts the exclusive local festivals. The nearby cluster of Mediterranean islands, Lérin, shouldn’t be missed either.

Eating and drinking
You’ll find many eateries specialising in Asian cuisine, sumptuous seafood and international dishes. Hit the beachfront restaurants for more of a range, with a fabulous al fresco edge. Once the sun’s gone in, smatterings of bars and clubs come alive, each with their own unique take on classic tunes and pumping bass.

Shopping
Mosey around the market for wafts of fresh fruit, the catch of the day and a look at all of the wares. If you’d rather enter the world of designer brands, then Cannes can certainly deliver in this department. There are also independent shops and oh-so-scrumptious chocolate purveyors.

Getting around
The buses run cheaply and at convenient times in Cannes, plus there are always taxis on standby. If you’re feeling like a day on the water, boats will escort you along the seas of the Riviera, too. If your next stop’s the Old Town or the shopping streets, then hop aboard the quaint toy trains.
