Holiday In Cannes

Cannes, set on the French Riviera, really needs no introduction. It’s yachts that sparkle almost as brightly as the Mediterranean they float in…and it’s beautiful people promenading in clothes that cost more than your rent.
Sure, it seems exclusive, but taking holidays to Cannes is actually easy. Just read on to discover the secrets of your next getaway.

Things to Do in Cannes

Follow in the footsteps of the stars at the Palais des Festivals—or rather, the handprints. The unofficial “Allee des Stars” is filled with celebrity handprints set in coloured bricks; see which one fits you best! Keep the celebrity thing going with a visit to the “Bubble Palace” in Theoule-sur-Mer, 15 km south along the beautiful Cote d’Azur, which has hosted models and celebrities through the decades. You may wish you could get there by limousine, but you can still arrive in style with one of lastminute.com.au’s Cannes car hire options.

Got a secret wish to wear super-high heels with a teeny bikini? Or rollerblade around wearing only a budgie smuggler? Cannes packages near La Croisette, the city’s promenade, can make all your dreams come true. Count Porches, tiny dogs wearing sweaters and clowns on stilts, or just watch the world go by. If all the world’s a stage, La Croisette is Cannes’ premier act.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Bust out that platinum credit card and get ready to throw some cash around. Find hip French brands that will get you celebrity-worthy comments like “Who are you wearing?” on Rue d’Antibes. A few blocks south, you’re as likely to see actual celebrities as you are awesome window-shopping on La Croisette. As for souvenirs that aren’t for yourself, pick up lavender soaps or fine linens for your homies.

When it’s time to refuel, keep that credit card out and pop into one of the fancy restaurants along La Croisette—a lunch of oeufs and ogling is in order. You don’t have to spend your life savings on a holiday in Cannes though; you just have to know where to look. For midday snacks, the Forville Market can supply you with endless tapenade (chopped olives, capers, anchovies and olive oil), bread and cheese. You can practically eat for free with all the samples, but we’d recommend a picnic on the beach.

If you love dancing on sofas, tables, bars—well, you get the idea—then the nightlife on a Cannes holiday will feel like your playground. Just off La Croisette, the jet-setters of the world congregate on Rue Freres Pradignac. Still haven’t taken off that bikini? Just keep the party going at the beach clubs. And if you need a break from all that glitz and glamour, try our Barcelona holiday packages for a night or two. Just an hour’s flight south, this city celebrates beautiful art and architecture over beautiful abs.

What’s Next?

Pack your sunnies, breezy white cover-ups and your best yacht-appropriate outfit (you know, just in case) and get ready for an A-list holiday. Packages to Cannes on lastminute.com.au won’t cost you an arm and a leg; save your cash for impressing your newfound friends instead!
