Notre Dame de l'Espérance

This hilltop church is thought to date from the 14th century. Keep an eye out for the fresco depicting the baptism of Jesus Christ.

Museum of Art and History of Provence

This charming museum, where entry is free, showcases Provençal art and history.

French Riviera

For a true sense of glam, join a tour of this luxury cruise ship. Not only do you get to walk around the decks, but you can also opt for an on-board dinner!

Marché Forville

This huge covered market with seasonal produce is open every morning, except on Mondays - where you can peruse antiques instead.

Îles de Lérins

The two large islands in the Bay of Cannes are Saint Honorat and Sainte Marguerite, respectively boasting monastery ruins and a castle.

Winery tour

Get out into the countryside and discover the region's famous wines. The Château Saint-Martin and its enchanting wine cellars are just one of many delightful sights and tastes to enjoy on a tour!

Planning Your Cannes Visit

Sun protection

Due to its sunny location on the Mediterranean, it's vital to be sensible when it comes to sun protection.

Restaurants

To save money on food in this stomping ground of the rich and famous, go beyond the bustling Antibes Street where you will find some cheaper dining options.

Day trips

If you can't get enough of the swanky lifestyle, it's easy to get to the principality of Monaco by car or even by boat.

Stay safe

Unfortunately, where there's money, there's bound to be crime. Don't flash your cash, and dress casual unless the occasion calls for it.

  • Best time to visit
    Unless you want to book well in advance and wrestle with thousands of other visitors, its best to avoid Cannes in May during its International Film Festival. Temperatures don't start to drop until November, and although its not an ideal time for swimming it will be the best time for your wallet!

Highly recommended and excellent value for money !

Very pleased with the experience. The minibus arrived punctually to pick us up from the hotel and we were surprised to find that we were the only 2 on the trip. The guide was friendly, well informed and eager to please. I would recommend the excursion to anyone to visit Monaco by night.

Fantastic opportunity to explore Nice countryside in just one day!

This one day trip to Nice countryside was even beyond all of my expectations! All the villages we have visited were perfectly chosen between all the beauty of this part of France. The guide was perfect and so professional with balancing historical facts and typical way of living in this beautiful area. Those villages are so nice, romantic and peaceful that I would defenitely come back to see them again. Guided visit to the Grasse perfume factory was also amazing and you can learn so many things regarding perfumes that you could never have imagined. When I come back to Nice I will certainly choose another of your beautiful trips you offer in this region (even possibly this one again) I will not hesitate to recommend you everywhere, you are really great!! Thank you for wonderful time in France!

From Nice: a day in Provence Reviewed by Lana, 02/02/2017

Fabulous! Best way to see all the towns for a first taste.

Our guide Zara was the best! I'm not a tour person, so I was hesitant about booking. It didn't take long for me to realize I made the right choice. We went to villages that I may not have stopped at but were the best part of my trip like Eze. The perfume factory was an unexpected delight. The pace of the day was perfect! Highly recommended!

Great guide in Andreas and a great trip!

We wanted a day trip that took us out of the city into the countryside villages. We found the perfect tour through your Tour Azur. If we ever get this way again we will surely look to see what torus are available. Thanks for providing exactly what we were looking for.
