At lunchtime :

Heading to Rue Hoche

During your lunch break, head for rue Hoche and the adjacent streets where numerous boutiques rub shoulders with cafés and restaurants. Whether you are looking for decoration, clothes, jewellery or sports, this epicentre of Cannes life is an ideal area for those who want to take a gourmet break between two shopping sessions.

The address to discover

La Lunetterie, where you will discover pairs of glasses in the pure eyewear tradition, including the creations of Florent Grellet, a local eyewear craftsman.

Summer shopping in Cannes

the charm of the alleys

In summer, you can enjoy the fine sandy beaches of the Mouré Rouge or the Boulevard du Midi, but you can’t find your swimming costume? Go and throw a flip-flop on rue Meynadier where you will find a multitude of good ideas for shopping in Cannes. Whether you want to find a pretty beach basket, a fouta or a summer dress, the shops along this cobbled street have a holiday flavour.

The address not to be missed

Tesi’s hat shop, where panama hats, boater hats, bowler hats and leather gloves are available in summer and winter. Created in 1882 and run from father to son, this is one of the most emblematic addresses on rue Meynadier.

Touristic shopping

nice souvenirs from Cannes

We love and adore Cannes and it is impossible to leave without an object stamped with the six letters that make up its name! In the Rue d’Antibes, in the Suquet or in the Cours Félix Faure, many shopkeepers distil the soul of the city through everyday objects that pay tribute to Cannes. You can stroll around with an ice cream in your hand, from one district to another, in search of a souvenir that will prolong your holidays…

What to bring in your suitcase?

A perfume or a Fragonard soap with the scent of Provence, an object with the effigy of the Cannes festival or a postcard to offer or to keep as a bookmark.

During the Cannes Film Festival :

The Croisette

This mythical boulevard, which owes its worldwide fame to the Cannes Film Festival, stretches over 3 km and is lined with beaches, palm trees, palaces and luxury brands. Haute-couture houses, jewellers, leather goods shops, it is a festival of renowned addresses that symbolise French elegance.

Immortalize your shopping on the Croisette?

We pose in front of one of the mythical places of the Croisette, the steps of the Palais des Festivals or the famous Carlton.

Daytime shopping all year round:

Rue d’Antibes

To spend a day shopping in Cannes, the Rue d’Antibes is the ideal place. Need a little black dress for the evening? A tie for a meeting? A decorative object for the house? This most commercial street in Cannes comes alive at every moment of the day and year. A real jewel in the crown of Cannes shopping, a myriad of shops hug each side of this street, almost as long as the Croisette!
