Le Suquet is the "old-town" of Cannes, located on the hill which overlooks the old port. On the top of the hill, admire the Suquet tower, the chapel Sainte-Anne and the church Notre-Dame-de-l'Espérance : all three are gathered on the same place : place de la Castre.
And do not forget to enjoy the view there !
The Forville Market is an historical local covered market, which is open everyday except on Mondays.
Hidden behind the city hall, you can take a walk between market gardeners, fishermen, cheese makers, butcher and florists ! Forville's car park allows 1 hour free, enough to do your shopping.
The archipelago of the Lérins Islands is visible from Cannes, 15 min by boat maximum. Two big islands form this archipelago : the Sainte-Marguerite island, (the biggest) famous for its fort which would have sheltered the Man in the iron mask and the smallest, the Saint-Honorat island where there is a monastery.
Transparent sea, shady areas under pines and isolated creeks make it the marvel of the Cannes Bay !
