Palais des Festivals et des Congres of Cannes Reviews
Famous for its film festival, this beach side town is home to wealthy Europeans during winters. Many good hotels, pubs & eateries available and the evenings are enjoyable with good music/dance. more »
Oh yeah, this is the place where all visitors would stop for photos on the red carpet. Other than that there's really nothing much to do. I guess we were obligated to wait for our turns for pictures..... more »
Cannot leave without seeing where the Cannes Film Festival is held every year. The original convention hall was built in 1949 in a different location. That convention hall also hosted the fourth and sixth Eurovision Song Contest of 1959 and 1961. But, due to the tremendous success of the Cannes Film Festival, the Cannes Municipality decided to invest in building a new hall for the festival, which began to be built in 1979. The new six-story building was built on the grounds of the Municipal Casino. It officially opened in 1982. You can take a look at it and maybe take a look inside before proceeding to your next destination.
We were fortunate enough to be here on liberation day. There were over 100 US Army vehicles of all sorts and all the drivers and participants were dressed to the era. It was amazing and the locals loved it. It is wonderful to see how much they appreciate what had been done for them so many years ago and that they have preserved the history. So much pride I am so glad I was here to witness it.
