We stayed at a campsite called Por La Mar, which is located in a small village in Latte Italy. It is the last village before the french border and in a great location to visit the French Riviera by train as the campsite owners run a shuttle service for 2 euro 50 each to the train station and will pick you up when you return. http://www.campingporlamar.com/en/camping/latte-beach/ We paid 17 euros per night including electricity, which was a discounted rate as we stayed at this campsite last year.
It took about an hour and twenty minutes on the train. Cannes train station is located right in the heart of the city centre which makes it a great destination if you are on foot.
Cannes is famous for hosting the Film Festival which was founded in 1946. Many film stars have stood on the red carpet of the stairs and today it was our turn!
We wandered along the Promenade de la Croisette which is located along the water front and is lined with palm trees.
La Croisette is known for picturesque beaches, restaurants, cafés, designer boutiques and the home of the ritzy hotels.
We walked up the steep path to Le Suguet which is the old town and provides a great view over La Croisette.
We had a lovely day out and had a great time people watching from the cafes.
