Cycling in Cannes; wellness and discovery
Cycling along the streets adjacent to the city’s eight kilometres of sandy beaches is both fascinating and invigorating. It’s a sun-kissed opportunity to make the most of the fine Riviera climate and fill your lungs with the fresh sea breeze. Your cycling itinerary should include a visit to Le Suquet, the city’s old quarter. History unfolds under your wheels as you ride through its winding medieval streets admiring the superb architecture of buildings such as the 16th century Church of Our Lady of Hope in the Place de la Castre. Don’t miss the opportunity to climb the bell tower and enjoy a stunning view over the bay.
Explore the streets of Cannes by bike
Pedal at your own pace to the western part of the Vieux-Port and roam the Forville market to savour the exquisite aromas of fresh seasonal organic produce. Combine your cross-Cannes cycling trip with a touch of retail therapy by pedalling to the Rue d’Antibes, a street offering a selection of boutiques brimming with affordable ready-to-wear clothing. If you have a penchant for chic fashions, head along the Boulevard de la Croisette and visit the outlets of the major clothing brands. At the same time, you can discover the Palais des Festivals convention centre, the quiet and relaxed Port Palm Beach, as well as other excellent beaches such as those of the Casino Esplanade, Square Verdun and Macé.
