Come check out Cannes with me!

I have just spent a few hours in Cannes (pronounced CAN), the film festival capital of the world, and if you only have a day, then take Le Petit Train for €10 for an hour’s ride all over this wealthy, stylish and fabulous city on the French Riviera.

This post is a thumb-scroll of what you’ll see from the train and near the cruise port… Go!

On cruise ship day there’s a big line for tickets, but do this first and then decide where to go back to for a wine in the sun!
