More About Flights to Cannes

How Do I Book a Flight?

Most visitors to Cannes head into neighboring Nice's Cote d'Azur Airport, rather than the relatively small local Mandelieu Airport of Cannes. Finding a flight into Nice is no problem at all, considering Cote d'Azur is the second busiest airport in France, with routes from 103 destinations in 34 countries, ranging from England to South Africa.

Search for flights to Nice from your departure city on Hipmunk, and find the date and airline that best suits you. From European cities such as London, Dublin, Glasgow, and Manchester, the best airlines are: easyJet, swissair, and British Airways. From New York and Los Angeles, try Aeroflot and British Airways.

What's the Best Way to Get To and From the Airport?

Shuttles run several times a day from Nice's Cote d'Azur Airport to Cannes. The Nice Airport Express departs every half hour from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. from Cote d'Azur Airport, with two more departures at 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

The travel time to Cannes is only 50 minutes, and drop off is at Hotel de Ville, City Hall. You can book the 20 Euro ticket before your journey, but tickets are also available at the airport. If you would like more comfort and space, or you are simply arriving too late to take advantage of the shuttle, private cars are also available to take you to your destination. Check with your hotel about transportation before you leave, because many Cannes hotels provide shuttle service from Cote d'Azur airport right to their doorstep.

Are There Any Good Hotels Nearby?

Cannes' City Hall is centrally located on the Boulevard de la Ferrage, within walking distance of the famous Croisette, where the Cannes Film Festival is held annually and where you will find most of the area's hotels. For budget options far from the crowds, try Colette and Ligure Cannes on the Place de la Gare. Mid-range lodging close to the shuttle drop-off includes the Hotel Gray d'Albion and Hotel Splendid Cannes. If you want to splurge and get a view of the marina right from the Croisette, head to the Majestic Barriere and indulge in the hotel's 5-star treatment.

What Should I See?

If you're interested in the affluent Riviera lifestyle, check out the Palais des Festivals, the grand hall that holds most of the major events in Cannes every year, and then walk along the neighboring marina to gaze at rows of mega yachts. For great dining, shopping, and people-watching, both La Croisette and Rue d'Antibes will not disappoint. These attractions are all located close to most Cannes hotels, and the city boasts a very pedestrian-friendly design, with large, clean sidewalks, as well as cafes and restaurants on every corner if you get hungry or just need to rest.

If you want to see Cannes' historic side, head up to La Suquet at sunset and walk around the centuries-old cobblestone alleys and classic French shops.

Are There Any Additional Travel Tips?

Stock up on sunscreen, bathing suits, and fashionable everyday clothing, especially if you are heading to Cannes between May and September. Also, after you spend a day basking in the sun, remember to take in some of the city's sights at night. As beautiful as Cannes is during the day, a stay in this elegant French city would not be complete without a stop at the regal casino and a night at the Riviera's decadent bars and clubs.

Booking a trip to Cannes and arranging your stay in the city will be the least of your worries while you are planning your travels. You can fly to the Cote d'Azur airport from almost anywhere in the world, and getting to central Cannes from the airport is a breeze. The city's pedestrian-friendly design and wonderful walkability will make getting around Cannes while on your trip relaxing and enjoyable.
