Silversea Luxury Cruises - Cannes, France

A place to see and be seen, Cannes is the flashy zenith of the Cote d’Azur’s glitzy and glamorous resorts. Offering first-rate people watching opportunities, the palm tree and palace-lined Promenade de la Croisette is one of the world’s premier seafront boulevards, and a place of fine dining, popping corks, and gleaming yachts. Whether you’re looking for sun, sea or famous festivals, the Capital of Cinema truly is a 5-star destination. View more

La Croisette is the catwalk of choice for sunglasses-toting A-listers - and whether you want to strut your stuff beside golden sands and turquoise waters - or sink into the anonymous shade of a café to watch the show - Cannes has something for every inclination. Of course, the city is synonymous with the silver screen’s finest, and celeb-spotting is a sport here when the movie world’s stars decamp to the south of France, for the annual film festival. Tuxes and flowing gowns float down the streets, when camera flashes and exclusive parties light up the city during this box office event. While souped up sports cars roll along the streets, and giant yachts flash in the harbour’s sun, the rising Le Suquet neighbourhood offers a perfect counterpoint to the extravagances, and some of the best views of the city. Cannes’ oldest quarter is its most charming and authentic, with restaurants scattered among the narrow stone streets plating up ingredients from the Marche Forveille market. Stuffed to the brim with the freshest, sun-blessed produce, you can try out some Pissaladiere – a flat bread of anchovies and caramelised onions, enhanced with the delicate fragrance of Provencal herbs. A trip out across the waves to Saint Marguerite’s island is another escape, and a place to crunch pine cones while hiking forest paths, before soaking in views back to the mainland from the fortress’s mighty ramparts.

St. Paul de Vence & Maeght Foundation

Visit the oldest and arguably one of the most exquisite villages in southeast France and explore the excellent examples of modern art at the Maeght Foundation Museum on this excursion that delights the senses.


Maeght Foundation Museum

Enjoy a 45-minute scenic drive to the Maeght Foundation Museum, a beautiful 1964 structure situated on the hill above the village of St. Paul de Vence. The museum was created by Aimé Maeght and his wife Marguerite to pay tribute to modern artwork and welcomes 200,000 visitors per year. Designed by Catalan architect Josep Lluis Sert, the unique museum structure itself is like a sculpture that integrates the building into nature.


Walk the grounds and observe the conversation between nature and art, surrounded by exquisite greenery and a sculpture park with pieces by collaborating artists, including Joan Miró, presented thoughtfully and in homage to the rhythm of the seasons. Look for the mosaic on an outerwall by Pierre Tal-Coat, as well as Les Amoureux by Marc Chagall, which was installed on the bookshop wall. Tour the museum's impressive collection that includes stained glass, works in bronze, well-known paintings and lithographs displayed inside.


St. Paul de Vence

Walk down the hill (15 minutes) to the beautiful medieval village of St. Paul de Vence, draped in flowers over ancient stone walls and set perched atop rolling hills and offering a splendid panoramic view of the Mediterranean. Built mostly in the 17th century, this gracious and ancient place is built around elements as old as the 13th century, such as the Romanesque church along Place du Chateau square. Take a guided walking tour of this typical fortress town, walking the lovely Rue Grande to see the Grande Fountain, which served as the town's source of drinking water as far back as the 16th century.


Enjoy some free time on your own after the guided portion of your tour is over. Then it is time to re-board the coach for the approximately 45 minutes return drive to Cannes via the highway.



Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of activity, walking mostly uphill on uneven, cobblestone streets and stairs in the village. There is 10 minutes of walking uphill to reach the village, and a steep uphill walk to get to the Maeght Foundation. Due to the extensive uphill walking, this tour may be too challenging to navigate for guests with limited mobility; this tour is not suitable for wheelchairs due to the number of steps and uneven surfaces. Guests are recommended to wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes. Guests may opt to spend more time in St. Paul and forego the visit to the Maeght Foundation. Space on this tour is limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
