Cannes : Michelin's recommendations
With its world-famous Boulevard de la Croisette, Cannes is one of the most glamorous resorts on the French Riviera. The red cliffs of Esterel rise steeply to the west, while the Lérins islands are located offshore. Since 1834 a whole host of famous personalities have helped to establish the city’s reputation. In the past the aristocracy would spend the winter here; nowadays celebrities flock here during the film festival, which is one of the most important events in the cinema world.
