Cannes, France - French Riviera Cruise Ship Port of Call

Cannes - Home of the Cannes Film Festival on the Beautiful French Riviera

By

Cannes, France is a scenic cruise ship port of call on the French Riviera. Cannes is the home of beautiful beaches and beautiful people. The annual Cannes International Film Festival, held in May of each year, is Cannes' most famous attraction. For almost two weeks, thousands of photographers, paparazzi, the press, and movie fans descend on Cannes to see the new films previewed and to catch a glimpse of the famous actors, directors, and film moguls.

The rest of the year Cannes is home to tourists seeking sun and fun on the French Riviera. In addition to beach fun, cruise ship passengers also love strolling down the Boulevard de la Croissette in Cannes, sitting in a sunny cafe, or exploring some of the nearby villages or cities on the Riviera such as St. Paul de Vence, Eze, or Monte Carlo.
