Google Maps: Cannes, France
Trip: ParisNice > Monte Carlo > AntibesCannes > Paris

Cannes is a beauty. No wonder some of the most beautiful people gather in this beach-town to celebrate the human creativity every year. The city has everything that French Riviera stands for. A crowded marketplace, long shore, a church with a view and the Cannes Film Festival.

Beach @ Cannes

We decided to take our first shot at the Festival Building. It was closed for public. However the necklace shaped beach behind it was worth spending a couple of hours. The waves were huge and there was an extension where we can stand and watch them in the making.

View from Notre Dame del' Esperance

Cannes, like most Cote d'Azure towns, is walkable and costly. We were hungry and settled for one of those restaurants that extend to the streets with a canopy. Food was delicious but it costed us 45 Euros.

Parking for the rich @ Cannes

After another round of the market, we decided to take the elevation and reached a church. Cannes is shaped as a valley that opens up towards the sea. The view was memorable. We took photographs from every possible angle.

We returned back to Nice late in the evening. Sunil was going to take a flight back to Paris and I had a train to catch. Cannes was the last town I visited in a really long eurotrip and hence it is special for me.
