Holiday highlights

Monte Carlo
Home to a world famous casino, it is the backdrop for many famous films including the James Bond movies Never Say Never Again and Golden Eye, and Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief.
Monaco
A special setting and a Mediterranean climate make Monaco a fairytale place that joins mountains and sea. It is said that in Monaco, 300 days a year are bright and sunny. It is the second-smallest independent state in the world, and the world's most densely populated country.
Rothschild Villa & Gardens 
This Venetian style palace is surrounded by nine different gardens, including a main garden that contains a temple and musical fountains.
Le Suquet
The old town of Cannes is named after the hill on which it stands. It provides great views, and the remains of the fortified castle priory lived in by Cannes' eleventh-century monks sits on the summit. The old town with its winding streets, small boutiques and restaurants is a beautiful place to stroll.
The Beach
About 7.5km of the 15km Cannes coastline consists of sandy beach.  Choose from public (no charge) and municipal beaches, where - in season - you can rent sun loungers and umbrellas, and avail of additional facilities such as showers, WC and cafes.
La Croisette 
This long shop-studded boulevard along the seafront is Cannes’ central attraction, and sits on 12km of beach.
