Hotels in this area are located along the Boulevard Carnot which runs north and south from Cannes' city center. The boulevard is a very wide, long pedestrian thoroughfare lined with shops. The south end of the Carnot, near Place du 18 Juin, is about a 10-minute walk from Boulevard Croisette along the water.
Centre et Croisette
The center of Cannes changes distinctly as you move from the central train station to the Promenade de la Croisette, which runs along the Plage de Croisette. Rue d'Antibes, a couple blocks south of the lower brow area surrounding the station, functions as the town's main high-end shopping street. South of this, the magnificent hotel-lined Promenade runs along the water and the large Palais des Festivals sits east of the public beach.
Cannes' Mandelieu airport is located five kilometers west of Cannes along the A8 La Provencale highway. Sitting along the Mediterranean Sea, the airport is just east of the Bois de Callian and the Domaniele de l'Esterel Forest.
The Old Port sits just south of the city's main train station. The large Palais des Festivals et des Congres is located on the east side of the Old Port. The Port is also home to the Place General de Gaulle and the start of the magnificent, hotel-lined Boulevard de la Croissette which runs along the water. The area is also home to the Musee de la Castre and Marche de Forville.
