While Cannes rests along the famous picturesque shore of the Mediterranean where clear blue sky and placid blue sea meet on the horizon of the city’s view, in town the smaller details give it its charming character. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so rather than attempting to describe what it is I like about this place other than its desirable geographical location, I’d rather do what I do best and share it with you in pictures.
The influence of the film festival is everywhere and many places such as this one take the name *star* in tribute to all the Hollywood hall of famers that pass through town annually.
Cute flashing sign for a candy store.
The Splendid Hotel.
One of the many snack shops along the croisette.
The cute Caffé Roma in front of the Palais de Festivals.
Boulevard de la Croisette runs along the beach and is lined with Cannes’ finest hotels, boutiques, and cafes.
My paparazzi shot!
MIU MIU….je t’aime.
Marilyn’s face is all over the city in emblems and pictures as she is one of the most beloved past patrons of the Cannes Film Festival.
Some fine caviar and vodka anyone?
A cute little produce market we came across.
Sea urchins for sale to eat…
I had the best oysters of my life in a local seafood restaurant here. You can buy them fresh on the street from many vendors.
Whole shrimps…eyeballs and all!
The different restaurants and cafes along the water are all marked and claimed with the irrespective flags. In America, private beaches don’t exist…only private beach access, so in France getting used to most being privately owned is still a bit foreign to me.
One thing I really love about France is all the public lounge chairs they provide. In Paris you see these style chairs in the Tuileries and Luxembourg gardens, ideal for lounging and people watching on a sunny day. Cannes public chairs are blue and line the croisette, waiting for strollers to take a rest and enjoy the view of the sea.
You are taking the best photos……..I was there in November and I totally missed this building with Marily Monroe on it. Though do remember Escada very well. Looks like a great Mom-daughter trip and hope you are having too good of a time together. XO
