Although its luxury shops, nightlife, casinos, and high-end restaurants give Cannes a feeling of exclusivity, this classic French Riviera city has alternatives to suit every budget.
Kick off your visit on the 2nd (Fri): Head underground at Grotte de Baume Obscure, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedrale Notre Dame du Puy, then steep yourself in history at Chateau de la Napoule / Musee Henry-Clews, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Notre Dame d'Esperance. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat): see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Plage du Martinez.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Cannes travel itinerary planner.
