Cheap Cannes Hotels
What to see by car: Cannes
As Cannes definitely does not suit all budgets, many people prefer to make
Cannes a daytrip from other more affordable locations on the Cote d'Azur, such
as Antibes and Nice (less than an hour away). The Provence region and the glorious
southern coastline make it worthwhile taking a car and exploring the sights.
Antibes, a holiday resort popular with locals and tourists alike, is not far
from Cannes. It has a pleasant and pedestrian friendly town centre, and boasts
some of the best sandy beaches in the region. It also has a large marina which
is home to some expensive yachts during the summer.
The city of Nice, situated in the Baie des Anges, is the commercial and tourist
hub. The streets are perpetually busy, and the old town is a delightful labyrinth
of winding streets and squares home to Genoese, Provencal, medieval and Baroque
architecture. Don't miss the exotic Cathedrale Sainte Reparate; Palais Lascaris;
Opera House; grand Hotel Negresco; and Promenade des Anglais. Nice also has
some fantastic museums and galleries boasting some of Europe's best collections
of impressionist artists.
Further along is Monaco, one of the world's few remaining absolute monarchies.
It has a reputation for attracting the world's rich and famous: the definitive
playground for the loaded. Its Casino Royale, Castle Rock, the aquarium and
super-yacht marinas are all highlights.
Heading west, you'll come across the idyllic up-market town of Saint Tropez,
a pleasant place to visit for a few hours but ruinously expensive to stay in.
Inland, the whole of the region of Provence provides a delightful excursion.
It's a rural hinterland characterized by vineyards, sleepy villages and the
historic towns of Avignon and Arles - which include some interesting Roman excavations.
