Cannes, a top rank international destination

For several decades tourism has developed a strong cosmopolitan nature. Located 25 minutes from Nice international airport, it is the city of festivals and conventions, a paradise for shoppers, the capital of the 7th art and a tourist city par excellence boasting extraordinary facilities.


If Cannes today is one of the global capitals of tourism and business trips, it also boasts an extraordinary natural setting, but also a long tradition of welcoming visitors, successfully combining professional skills and technical infrastructures to make the city a trusted and attractive destination.


The natural beauty of the place, combined with a comprehensive range of accommodation, including top end hotels in its Old Port, on its famous Croisette, or its old town with its Italian flavour, or Rue d’Antibes where luxury and elegance combine, are all assets which make Cannes an unbeatable destination. The main business tourism city after Paris, it has built its reputation on know-how and top end amenities which make it a competitive destination loved by some of the biggest international events.
