Your historical sightseeing, between dips in the Mediterranean, shall be illuminated by fireworks, during the summer-long celebration called Nuits de Port Fréjus (Port Fréjus Nights).
Cannes is first and foremost the cinema. But beyond the prestigious international film festival, the town looks out upon a marvellous bay.
