The hill of Le “Suquet” is the birthplace of Cannes.
We advised you to start your visit in the old town. You can reach the old town by different routes, on steep roads intertwined with sinuous and picturesque flights of steps where the pedestrian is king. Visit the ramparts, the Musée de la Castre, the Tour Carrée and the church.
Admire the view over the city, the port, la Croisette and the Lérins Islands. At the foot of the old town lies the bay of Cannes with the Forville market with typical local shops around it (butchers, charcuteries, fishmongers, bakers, wine merchants, etc…).
Facing Le Suquet, the Old Port, the oldest part of which, the “Quai St Pierre”, dates back to 1838, and wich welcomes old sailing boats and yachts. The Royal Regattas leave from this port in September.
