The Tourist Office and the Palais des Festivals organize guided visits throughout the year. Accessible to both groups and individuals, these tours and discoveries tell you the singular history of Cannes and the passionate relationship that the city has maintained for decades with the cinema. These visits are carried out by guides from the Tourist Office in three languages, French, English and Italian.
Each year in May, at the time of the Cannes Film Festival, Cannes is the center of the world. The Croisette, the glitter, the red carpet, the stars of the 7th art, a flamboyant showcase which hides two centuries of a surprising history. The tour named "There was once in Cannes" tells you the unrecognized past of a small fishing harbor which became an icon of world tourism.
Experience the magic of the cinema thanks to two guided visits. Organized twice or three times per month, the tour named "In the heart of the myth" opens to you the doors of the Palais des Festivals, emblematic building of all fantasies. The visit begins with the famous staircase and the ceremonial climbing of the stairs, a creation of Cannes. The unprecedented opportunity is offered to you to discover the second congress center in France.
More fun, the tour named "Cannes and the Cinema" offers a walking tour from the Palais des Festivals to the painted walls passing by the Old Port and the Suquet, a journey marked by anecdotes and small secrets that "revisit" the history of the glamour of the cinema in tandem with the city. This tour is not available in Italian.
