Things to do in Nice: Visit Le Chateau to enjoy the view of the whole city (where the picture above is taken), there is also a nice park and a playground on the top (didn’t see the castle / Chateau though…). If you don’t feel like walking up, you can take the elevator (free + no line when I went there!).

Dining in Cannes: On place I really liked, and can strongly recommend is Cocoon (18, rue Bivouac Napoleon – in the city center, close to the beach, harbor and Rue d’ Antibes): A charming restaurant perfect for breakfast and lunch. The menu changes daily, and the dishes are homemade (and delicious!). Cocoon is runned by mother and daughter (two very friendly ladies) and is on Trip Advisors top 5 list of restaurants in Cannes.

Saint Tropez The old charming fishermen village that turned in to the number 1 playground for the rich and the famous, offers an odd combo of jet-set and shabby chic charm, turned out to be my favorite location during my stay in the south of France. It was just so incredible beautiful, if you ever have the change to go – then go! :-)

Turns out fireworks are a frequent phenomena in Cannes, the city is even a part of an international firework festival. Amazing firework and light show combined with classic music and a beach filled with people – locals and tourists, grown-ups and kids staying up late. A pretty great experience!:)

For the mainstream brands, Rue d’Antibes is the best shopping street in Cannes. Here you’ll find Zara, Mango, Massimo Dutti (where I bought the dress below on sale), Sephora, PimKie, Jules and so on.
