An unusual way of rediscovering Cannes, told by means of freaky anecdotes and shooting secrets.
For more than 65 years, the city of Cannes welcomes a major planetary event, 2nd most mediatized after the Olympics : the Cannes Film Festival. Since 1939, date of the first Film Festival, the 7th art comes to the French Riviera to walk on the famous steps of the Palais des Festivals on one hand, but also to use this gigantic open-air film set.
Glamour and anecdotes are the main promises of this visit proposed by the Tourist office of the city of Cannes. From the famous red carpet of the Film Festival to the painted walls as a tribute to the cinema world, by way of the enigmatic iron mask, this visit mixes cinema history with numerous anecdotes and shooting secrets which will delight the cinema enthusiasts as well as the non-initiated visitors.
In nine stages, this visit invites the participants to a journey through cinema history. The itinerary begins at the feet of the stairs and continues along the path of Stars where follow one another the imprints of numerous famous actors. It then goes on with the most luxurious hotels of the city, Majestic Barrière, Carlton or Martinez, symbolic shooting places of numerous cult movies, to the Palm Beach, the film set of “La Melodie en sous-sol” (Any number can win) by Henri Verneuil.
This one and a half hour tour is the opportunity for the visitor to admire the famous painted walls, real open-air paintings, which decorate the walls of several buildings of the city. These frescoes honor iconic cinema figures : Charlie Chaplin and the famous poster of “The Kid”, Buster Keaton, “l’Hôtel de la Plage” by Jacques Tati without forgetting Marylin Monroe.
