Cannes

The symbol of the Riviera

A holiday to France with MSC Cruises is the perfect chance to visit Cannes.
With its immaculate seafront hotels and exclusive beach concessions, glamorous yachts and designer boutiques, Cannes is in many ways the definitive Riviera resort, a place where appearances count, especially during the film festival in May. The not particularly attractive seafront Palais des Festivals is the heart of the film festival but also hosts conferences, tournaments and trade shows.

Despite its glittery image, Cannes works surprisingly well as a big seaside resort, with plenty of free, sandy public beaches. Promenade de la Croisette is certainly the sight to see during your excursions, with its palace hotels – the Martinez and Carlton – on one side and their private beaches on the other. It’s possible to find your way down to the beach without paying, but not easy (you can of course walk along it below the rows of sun beds).

The old town, known as Le Suquet after the hill on which it stands, provides a great panorama of the curve of Cannes’ bay. On its summit stand the remains of the fortified priory lived in by Cannes’ eleventh-century monks, and the beautiful twelfth-century Chapelle Ste-Anne. The Musée de la Castre, in the remains of Cannes’ eleventh-century priory, holds an extraordinary collection of musical instruments from all over the world, along with pictures and prints of old Cannes and an ethnology and archaeology section.

MSC Mediterranean cruises also offer excursions to Nice. Since reaching its zenith in the belle époque of the late nineteenth century, it has retained its historical styles almost intact: the medieval rabbit warren of Vieux Nice, the Italianate facades of modern Nice and the rich exuberance of fin-de-siècle residences dating from when the city was Europe’s most fashionable winter retreat.

      Spend a few hours off the ship exploring the sophisticated seaside town of Cannes and the resort of St. Raphael on the glorious French Riviera. Your first stop after boarding the coach will be Cannes itself, host of the annual Cannes Film Festival and a thoroughly captivating resort that you will then have time to explore at your leisure. Immerse yourself in living history as you amble through the lovely old town, enjoy the view from the castle ruins, check out the yachts moored in the harbour and follow in the footsteps of the jet set as you stroll down the sartorial La Croisette, Cannes’ famous seafront promenade. Further highlights include the town’s many luxury hotels, high-end boutiques and the wonderful Marché Forville market. The next leg of the tour will then see you re-board you coach and head for St. Raphael, an attractive seaside resort popular among artists, sportspeople and politicians seeking relaxation. You will have some free time to spend in town and discover its hidden treasures before the coach returns you to Cannes and your ship. Please note: guests using a wheelchair are advised that they must be accompanied by a paying helper to provide assistance with getting on and off the coach and that wheelchairs must be collapsible/foldable since the coach has neither a ramp nor a lift. Guests using a wheelchair who would like to participate in this tour are requested to contact the Shore Excursions’ Desk promptly once they are on board so that arrangements can be made.

        Apart from the glorious weather and beautiful blue of the Mediterranean Sea, numerous upscale resorts and a highly varied coastline all go to make the south of France so appealing. After a coach-based look at Cannes, the first destination on this entertaining tour is the town of Antibes, situated in between Cannes and Nice on the Côte d’Azur. Places of interest in the superbly preserved medieval town include its cathedral, the 17th-century Château Grimaldi, the Picasso Museum and Port Vauban, now a marina much famed for its numerous high-end yachts and as the playground of billionaires. After leaving town, you’ll make your way to the promontory known as Cap d’Antibes, once of strategic military importance and now home to a Napoleonic museum, an archaeological museum and fortified bastions. The spot also affords great views of the surrounding coastline so do keep your camera at hand. Finally, you’ll return to Cannes for time to explore on your own before you return to the ship. Please note: all visits are external.

      France

      A discrete and slightly snobbish charm
      A discrete and slightly snobbish charm

      A holiday to southern France will take you to heaven. This Garden of Eden encompasses the snow-peaked lower Alps and their foothills, which in the east descend right to the sea, and to the west extend almost to the Rhône.


      The coastal hinterland is made up of range after range of steep, forested hills, while the shore is an ever-changing series of geometric bays giving way to chaotic outcrops of glimmering rock and deep, narrow inlets, like miniature fjords – the calanques. All these elements would count for nothing, however, were it not for the magical Mediterranean light. At its best in spring and autumn, it is both soft and brightly theatrical, as if some expert had rigged the lighting for each landscape for maximum colour and definition with minimum glare. A cruise to southern France is a good opportunity to visit the capital of the Riviera, Nice – a vibrant and intriguing blend of Italianate influence, faded Belle Époque splendour and first-class art.

      East of the city, the lower Corniche links the picturesque seafront towns of Villefranche, St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and Beaulieu; the higher roads offer some of the most spectacular coastal driving in Europe, en route to the perched village of Èze and the tiny principality of Monaco. The Riviera’s western half claims its best beaches – at jazzy Juan-les-Pins and at Cannes, a glitzy centre of designer shopping and film.
