Explore the beauty and history of Le Suquet as well as the legendary La Croisette Boulevard, where the Cannes Film Festival takes place, on a guided walking tour or zip through the genteel streets on a guided Vespa tour.

When to Get There

Cannes is a pleasant place to visit any time of the year. In July, Le Suquet hosts special outdoor concerts (Nuits Musicales du Suquet). The perfect time is early fall, as the weather is still warm and the crowds are few. High season is during the summer and in May when both the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix take over the Riviera.

Look for rare Persian objects and paintings from the 1st era of the Qajars, as well as art from Oceania, Tibet, and a rich well of Mediterranean antiquities, pre-Columbian ceramics, musical instruments from all over the world, and 19th century landscape paintings.
