Cannes in Summer
A summer moon lights up the white sands of Cannes’ beaches as hundreds of actors and filmmakers converge on the city to take their turn gracing the red carpet. Drift lazily down the seaside boulevards and head towards the legendary Palais des Festivals. Meander through the boutiques on rue d’Antibes. Then, climb up the pink cobblestone lane known as Le Suquet. Situated on Mont-Chevalier, this is the oldest neighborhood in Cannes, which offers fantastic views of the bay. Satisfy your cravings for Provençale cuisine on the unassuming terrace of Suquet Première, where the fare is always fresh and straightforward.
It’s impossible to miss the huge posters unfurled around town as part of the Cannes fait le mur exhibition, celebrating 70 years of festivalgoers’ smiles and laughs (runs until August 31st). The Zeïneb and Jean-Pierre Marcie-Rivière collection awaits you at Bonnard Museum. The exhibition pays homage to the museum’s namesake, the famous painter Pierre Bonnard (runs until September 17th). And be sure not to miss Villa Domergue and its enchanting gardens. Starting June 30th, it will host an exhibition contrasting two very different styles: the innovative works of Man Ray and the more traditional decorative art of Domergue and Maugendre.
Your day is drawing to a close. Fancy a little exploration? Venture a few kilometers outside Cannes to the Fort Royal, which was turned into a State Prison in the early 17th century. Situated on Île Sainte-Marguerite, some believe this to be the prison that held the man in the iron mask.
For your next trip to Cannes, think of stopping at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Thalasso overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and just a few steps away from the famed Croisette and Old Port. You will thoroughly enjoy its exceptional rooms and panoramic restaurant – aptly named the 360°. Also, be sure to visit the hotel’s thalasso, Les Thermes Marins, where you can take full advantage of the summer weather and treat yourself to some relaxing thalassotherapy. We are looking forward to welcoming you like a star!
