Le Suquet is the “old town”, the historical heart of Cannes, located on the hill overlooking the Old Port.

This medieval district of Cannes has preserved all its charm. Stroll through the narrow streets, enter the souvenir and craft stores and taste the typical dishes of the Provencal cuisine in an authentic restaurant.
To continue this discovery of the authentic city of Cannes, meet the local producers at the Forville market; the emblematic market of Cannes. The Forville Market is a local covered and historic market that takes place every morning except on Mondays.
Visible from Cannes, the archipelago of the Lerins Islands is only a 15 minutes boat ride away. The archipelago is made up of two large islands: the island of Sainte-Marguerite which is the largest and famous for its fort which would have sheltered the Man with the Iron Mask and the smaller island, the island of Saint-Honorat where you will find the monastery of the same name.
Today 21 monks make up the community of the monastery of the Cistercian Congregation of the Immaculate Conception and have been cultivating their vineyard with passion since the Middle Ages. Everything is done by hand. The vineyard includes eight hectares with which the monks produce wines of quality recognized by the professionals, but also liqueurs since 150 years.
You can discover the Xth century chapels and the XIth century remains that dot the island while leaving free access to small natural creeks and alleys lined with olive trees and Aleppo pines.
Cannes is a territory of culture. On the Croisette, La Malmaison, an art center, regularly exhibits the greatest masters of painting such as Matisse and Picasso, who themselves were inspired by the French Riviera.
Another cultural place, unique in its kind, is the underwater eco-museum. This eco-museum is located between the islands of Lérins and allows you to discover, underwater, the monumental sculptures of the artist Jason deCaires Taylor.
