Fodor's calls the tiny Musée de la Castre is “Cannes's token cultural attraction.” Constructed by 11th-century monks in the Gothic style, the little château is a piece of art in its own right. Inside, you'll find everything from African drums to Provençal Impressionist paintings. According to one TripAdvisor user: “In a world where most museums are turning into big cultural Disneylands, this old museum in Cannes offers a rare reprieve in time and space.”

Closed on Mondays, this museum is open year-round for a small fee.

On La Croisette, a mile-long promenade that skirts the shore, you can lookout on the sparkling Mediterranean and the rolling Estérel hills.  You can also take in all the glamorous pedestrians, dressed in everything from designer apparel to skimpy bikinis and high heels.

A TripAdvisor user has this to say: “This is an interesting street to stroll, my son had a great time counting all the Ferrari's we passed. ... Definitely the place to go if you like people watching.”
