Cannes: La Croisette of dreams

by Niki Kefala

Cannes is a trip to the glamour lifestyle. As you walk among the expensive haute couture shops and palaces of La Croisette, the wealth and glamour of it all cannot fail to impress. Admiring Ferraris and Porsches cruising by, the yachts with the celebrities enjoying  the blue sea and the sunny days, you feel like one of the fortunate. Enjoy a strolling to the palm-shaded promenade and the views of the Bay of Cannes and nearby Estérel mountains are beautiful. The seafront hotel palaces dazzle in all their stunning art deco glory reminds me of the 50’s.

Like home: I have being many times in Cannes. I have stayed at Pierre et Vacances in La Bocca and also at Best Western Astoria in Juan Le Pins. Very nice hotels and clean. Not of course at the center of  Cannes (the hotels are way too expensive there) but in 10 minutes by bus or train you are there.

Almost famous: You must visit Cannes at May, when the Film Festival du Cannes begins. Hollywood stars, directors and celebrities from all over the world is here to celebrate the film industry. Put your best dress on, take your invitation (if you are lucky enough to have one) and watch a movie with many famous actors around you.

Yummy: You are in France so croissant, bageuettes and sea food are your first choices. Steer clear of the La Croissette if you want to stuff your stomach without emptying your wallet. Head to the old harbor and there are plenty of waterfront restaurants that offer excellent fixed price menus.

Dress up: As glamour and fancy as you can. The navy look is a must.

The three words you must know if you are visiting Cannes.

Palais du Festival: is the place for the Cannes Film Festival.

Bonjour: means good morning.

Billets: means tickets.
