Galas, regattas, and an outrageously attractive and affluent set characterize Cannes in the Alpes-Maritimes department on the French Riviera. This busy town is host of the annual Cannes Film Festival. Each year in May, celebrities slowly walk up the 24 red-carpeted steps to the Palais des Festivals, their every mili-move snapped by paparazzi and cheered by thousands of onlookers greedy for a brush with greatness.
"Life is a festival." People-watching is the activity that brings most visitors to Cannes just down the road from Nice and Monaco on the Côte d'Azur, and hotel-lined La Croisette provides a fine promenade. And, first popularized by Coco Chanel, Cannes beaches are a huge draw.
Cannes embodies the sweetly scented nation of a life which everybody dreams of living.
