The viewpoint in front of the church as well as next to the church provides one with panoramic views over the city and valleys. Do continue to the top, the view is worth it. It is not a massive climb and one can wind down...More

With a leisure walk up along the Suquet old town about 10 minutes from Cannes. Special rate for group size over 10 pax. Climb up the tower for a beautiful bird eye view over pretty Cannes. Quite many world ethnical collections and paintings on display.

This museum is truly a waste of space, and the collection has absolutely nothing to do with the region. The tour has a beautiful of Cannes, but the staircase leading up to the top is really horrific and dirty.

If you're into sightseeing or photography then the 7€ admission might be worth it just to get to the top of the castle for the 360 view of Cannes. Stopped here while in port for a cruise and was able to get great aerial photos...More

Supposed to visit the museum but instead of going inside we ended up just chilling outside the museum. The view from the top was just mesmerising. We just took in the beauty of Cannes from up above. Walking up the staircase was a delight cos...More
