Cannes is the site of the annual International Film Festival.

You can walk around the site of the festival and see the sidewalk with the handprint of your favorite actor, actress, producer or director.



In Cannes, you must visit La Croisette and the Festival Hall

Nearby see Les îles de Lérins:
• Île Sainte-Marguerite (fort and Museum of the Sea)
• Île Saint-Honorat (Cistercian monastery).

Today, for all, Cannes is the world capital of cinema. It is the city of flakes and starlets, the fancy yachts, the strass and stars. It is the heavenly stay. It is the paradise residence of the great of this world and the rich.

Forville market (fruits - vegetables - flowers - fish...) Open daily 7: 00 to 13: 00 except Monday
Market Gambetta (Clothing - various) open every day from 7: 00 to 13: 00 except Monday
Market of La Bocca, place Paul Roubaud (fruit - vegetables) open every day from 7: 00 to 12 h 30 except Monday

La Croisette got its name from a small cross that used to stand east of the Cannes Bay. It is one of the most famous avenues in France and a wonderful promenade in the heart of Cannes that attracts locals as well as visitors from around the world. La Croisette runs parallel to the seashore and its beaches for just a couple of miles with the Mediterranean, the Lerins Islands off the coast and the Esterel mountain range on its one side. On its other side are palm trees, sumptuous hotels and stylish boutiques. Created during the nineteenth century, the beachfront vendors are friendly and inviting and the generous selection of restaurants is outstanding.

The very charming Lerins Islands are still relatively wild and car-free and are a short, half hour, boat trip off the coast of Cannes. Saint-Honorat is the smaller of the two islands and has an active monastery, a museum and an abbey. The larger, Sainte-Marguerite has the old fort where the legendary man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned. This island also houses the Musee de la Mer that was dedicated to the treasures of the sea and displays impressive archaeological treasures.

Cagnes-sur-Mer is an authentic medieval village, as well as a fishing port. It has the Renoir Museum surrounded bt ancient olive trees. It has a Medieval Festival, and a horse racing season… which make Cagnes-sur-Mer an important stop on the French Riviera.

Within the Chateau is the arresting Donation Suzy Solidor, thirties Parisien cabaret singer as painted by forty different artists like Cocteau and Lempicka.
Haute de Cagnes

Haute de Cagnes

Haute de Cagnes is a village with a medieval castle once owned by the Grimaldi dynasty (the Royal family of Monaco).

Nearby you can always spot the Chateau Grimaldi, at the top of the medieval bourg of Haut-de-Cagnes.
Cagnes-sur-Mer is made up of three parts. There is the old village located at the top of a hill. This is built on the site of an early village that was occupied by the Greeks and then the Romans. The new town sits at the foot of the hill and the third part is the charming old fishing port.

Before Cagnes-sur-Mer became a popular tourist destination the fishing port was the site of the town’s main industry.

The old village of Cagnes - called Haut-de-Cagnes, has medieval and renaissance houses and ancient narrow lanes. It is also the site of the castle, Chateau Grimaldi, which was once the most important centre in the region. This was the home of the influencial Grimaldi family and it dates to the 14th and 16th centuries.

Cagnes-sur-Mer is also known for its connection to Renoir, the impressionist painter who lived in Cagnes-sur-Mer at the end of his life until his death. His estate, Les Collettes is beautifully surrounded by Olive trees and houses the Musee Renoir, with a collection of 11 of his paintings.
Suzy Solidor

Suzy Solidor

Early in 1930 she became a popular singer and opened a chic nightclub called Boite de Nuit.

One of the singer's most famous publicity maneuvers was to become heralded as the "most painted woman in the world". She posed for some of the best known artists of the day including Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Her stipulation for sitting was that she would be given the paintings to hang in her club and by this time she had accumulated thirty-three portraits of herself. Boite de Nuit became one of the trendiest night spots in Paris.

In 1960 she moved to Cagnes-sur Mer, where she opened a cabaret in the medieval Grimaldi Chateau and decorated it with 225 of her portraits.

Renoir Museum in Cagnes-Sur-Mer

 Railroad Viaduct, Grasse, France postcard

Railroad Viaduct, Grasse, France postcard

View is the Viaduct and hotels at Les Gorges du Loup between Grasse and Vence. Some tall stubs of the pillars are all that remain here.

Yes, Grasse, the "Perfume Capital of the World" once boasted two railroads!

A network of 1-meter railways was built in the South of France at the end of the 19th century, run by the Chemins de Fer du Sud de la France (S.F.), later to become the Compagnie des chemins de fer de la Provence (C.P.).

Nice-Meyrargues was the central section, running across the departments of the Var and the Alpes Maritimes, from Meyragues, via Draguignan and Grasse, to Colomars at the Var river, where it connected with the Nice-Digne section. Going East from Draguignan, the rail line passed through Peymeinade and into Grasse. Southwest of Grasse, past Peymeinade, the tall stone pillars of the broken railway viaduct are visable. Signs of the old railway line exist in the roads passing directly through Grasse. Where the Route de Draguignan arrives at a round-about near St Jacques Stadium, a narrow road follows the railway line east to join the Grasse-Cannes road a fountain-round-about. At that point, the west-bound road passes (one-way) through the old railway tunnel before arriving at the round-about. East-bound, the road follows the old railway line all the way to Chateauneuf-Grasse, passing through one tunnel along the way. Past Chateauneuf-Grasse, the former railway line passed through Bar-sur-Loup, Pont-du-Loup, Tourrettes-sur-Loup and Vence. From Chateauneuf to Pont-du-Loup, the road passes beside several sets of broken viaducts. Arriving close to Vence, the road joins the old railway line to cross a long railway bridge and continue into the town along the former right-of-way.


Moustiers-Ste-Marie is at the base of rocky cliffs. Above the village, is the Notre-Dame de Beauvoir chapel.

4 km from Grasse and 21 km from Cannes is Châteauneuf-de-Grasse. It is a pretty perched medieval village. It is in close proximity to Sophia-Antipolis - the large sprawling techno park. Like Opio, Valbonne and Le Rouret it has a large Anglophile population.

Biot Medieval Festival

Every year, Biot is host to a Medieval Festival

Located 13km from Grasse, Gourdon is another one of those magical perched French villages.

The little town of St-Paul-de-Vence has a medieval character, is located on a hill 3km/2mi to the south of Vence. Dating from the 16th Century, is provided with sturdy reinforcing supports on the steep slopes; there is also a government defense tower. The early 13th Century church has silver-work, reliquaries and a ciborium dating from 1439. In the Place de la Fontaine (with a fountain) stands the Musée Provençal.

Cannes is world-wide known thanks to the International Film Festival, its luxury hotels and its prestigious guests: beautiful people stars, starlets, exotic kings, queens and princesses.

Cannes has many, almost all of them are on the Croisette. Built at the beginning of the 20th century, they are all architectural treasures in front of the Mediterranean and sandy white beaches. The Carlton and the Martinez have private beaches, large pools, solariums.

In May, the International Film Festival and the International movie market take place and all the city is in a turmoil. It is the perfect moment to see or even meet film producers and stars.

Drop-Ship - The Ultimate

Imagine the bicycle delivery person in the picture pedaling through a “pedestrian zone”. His first stop is a small T-Shirt store. He brings their package inside and gets a signature on his hand-held device. Next, he delivers a smaller package to a teenager in a nearby apartment. Again he gets a signature. You have just seen the tail end of the supply chain.

Ancienne Hippie The Forum for Supply Chain Integration

ec-bp was established in 2005 as the advocate for lowering the barriers to the adoption of EDI, and our email newsletter has been published every month since that time. Our focus has expanded beyond EDI to encompas the full gamut of supply chain practices and technologies. In addition, our readership has grown to become the largest of any similarly focused publication, and has expanded to include more than 90,000 professionals involved in nearly every aspect of the supply chain.

Today’s supply chain is more than simple transport of EDI documents. The complexity of maintaining compliance with trading partners, managing the ever increasing amount of data, and analyzing that data to drive constant improvement in processes and service take supply chain professionals far beyond the basics of mapping EDI documents.
