Once a little hilltop fishing village, Cannes has evolved over the years into a high profile destination sought by the glamorous worlds of cinema and the riches. It is now most known worldwide for the annual Cannes Film Festival which takes place every month of May. Yet the glamour and glitz reputation veils a much different and more authentic face to Cannes. In some ways, it is still the quiet fishing village it once was, and at certain times, it remains a typical Mediterranean seaside town. Yet when visiting Cannes during peak seasons, it could seem out of control! Cannes has something for everyone, but timing your trip carefully is most important when visiting this beautiful Mediterranean resort.

Peak seasons include the Cannes Film Festival, which takes place in mid-May, and the high summer months, from mid-July until mid- to late-August.
