Local Recommendations

CANNES:

Restaurants:

– Viet Thai (6 Rue du Maréchal Joffre, 06400 Cannes): Collège favorite. Good prices, decent food, and very friendly owner.

– Sri Ganesh: Really good Indian food. Fun ambiance. Another college favorite. The garlic naan is a must!

– Ma Nolan’s: A chain, yes I know. But if you happen to be missing some good American hot wings, or craving some guacamole and sour cream smothered nachos, or wanting to listen to some awesome music, this is the place to go with a group of friends.

– Le P’tit Zinc: Tiny little restaurant at the bottom of Le Suquet. They have an incredible Salade du chèvre (goat cheese salad) and everything is so fresh that they stop serving food once they run out so make sure you get there early!

Things to Do:

– Île Saint Marguerite: Take the ferry out to this beautiful little island to admire the crystal blue waters, faire une dégustation de vin (wine tasting), and tour the beautiful old monastery on the island.

– The Beach: You can honestly plop a beach towel down anywhere along the beach for an incredible view, good sun, and a relaxing time.

– Rue d’Antibes: This is the most popular street in Cannes – there are hundreds of shops, cafés, boutiques, restaurants, you name it. Definitely take time to just stroll up and down this street for some excellent shopping.

– Le Suquet: The old quarter of Cannes where the tiny streets are paved with cobblestone, going up a steep hill (so prepare to be a little winded by the end of your walk). But if you are willing to make a trek, the very top of the Suquet is where you can find the  . . .

– Musée de la Castre: A cute little museum with artifacts from all over the world. But really you should go here for the view. In front of the museum is a tiny courtyard with the “CANNES” sign that overlooks the town, and in the museum is an old tower that you can climb up to the top and get the most amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
