Cannes town: main streets
Rue Felix Faure
Rue Felix Faure on Cannes liberation day, August 24, and a procession of WW2 American vehicles are driven victoriously around Cannes by French collectors. This was immediately outside the delightful little 3-screen Cinema des Arcades which shows English language movies.
Rue Felix Faure with remote-controlled boat pond, McDonalds on the left, Les Arcades cinema behind the statue and boule courts adjacent.
At the west end of Rue d’Antibes the name changes to Rue Felix Faure and embraces attractions such as boule courts, bandstand and an occasional market; reasonably priced restaurants including a McDonalds; a small triplex cinema called Les Arcades showing movies in VO (Version Originale, i. e. English in most cases); visit Le Vieux Port where the real – though smallish – super yachts hang their bollards and tourists can gawp at the extravagance or catch a ferry to the Lérins Islands, just 15 minutes away; the Hôtel de Ville (Town Hall); walk up to the best, panoramic viewpoint in the town, Le Suquet hill, a must do. And don’t forget the incredible fireworks during July-August.
