The hill of “Le Suquet” is the birthplace of Cannes. It overlooks the city and the bay. The old town is accessible by different routes, on steep roads intertwined with sinuous and picturesque flights of steps where the pedestrian is king. On top of the hill, admire the view over the city, the port, la Croisette and the Lérins Islands. Totally and beautifully rehabilitated, this district of Cannes knowsa new craze, living to the rhythm of the art with notably the creation of a residence of artists baptized the Suquet of the Artists.
On the way down, don’t miss the oldest market of Cannes called “Forville” to taste typical and provencal products such as the aioli and the socca, and share a friendly moment with local producers and farmers.
