Since we were in the area, we decided that we had to go to Cannes since it is well known for its annual film festival. It is a great day out from Nice.
Getting there from Nice
The bus is a long one but only cost us €3 for the two of us each way. It took us 1.5 hours there and back. The bus stops are along the Promenade along the sea front in Cannes. The earlier you get on the bus, the better because you are more likely to get a seat.
Musee de la Castre
This museum is on the top of the hill in Cannes in the Old Town area. It has a 11th century water tower and the museum itself houses items from the 19th century Dutch explorer, Baron Lucklama. Otherwise its a great view of the area from on top of the hill. This museum closes for lunch so be prepared.
