Cannes France Travel Guide – French Riviera Film Festival & More
Where does the most renowned film festival in the world take place? Cannes, France, of course!
If you want to be a part of this glamorous event, you should visit this beautiful French city in mid to late May. That’s the time when thousands of films are screened, and the world biggest celebrities arrive to the town to take a walk down the red carpet.
We also recommend you check out Les Allées des Étoiles (Cannes’ mini version of Hollywood’s famous Walk of Fame), handprints of various film stars in the concrete. You will definitely come across some familiar names, such as Gerard Depardieu, Meryl Streep, and Sylvester Stallone, but also, Akira Kurosawa and David Lynch.
Cannes Walk of Fame begins at the base of the Palais des Festivals near the Tourism Office, wraps around the park and ends on the Croisette so you won’t have any troubles finding it.
