Cannes, a small 7.5 sq mile city in France, is the perfect place for anyone who’s looking for a well-deserved respite. Since its emergence, it has perpetually been a hub for entertainment which features the best beaches and hosts the biggest music festivals around the world. And one of the most remarkable places here happens to be a stretch of road called Promenade de la Croisette.
Monikered as the true heart of Cannes, best experienced from the comfort of an exotic luxury car rental like a Lamborghini Aventador, it stretches over 3 km and is home to palm & pine trees. It is hard to find any other place other than this if you are in for some sun-basking and sunbathing. The occasional zephyr from the beach and the constant lapping of the waves is a dream to anyone.
A little history about this cosy little place would tell you that Croisette Promenade came into existence in the other half of the 19th century. The city actually has some orthodox past attached to it. The name of this street was derived from an ancient cross that once stood witness at the promontory betwixt Cannes and the bay of Golfe-Juan, which drew attention to pilgrims and theists. This particular stretch is reminiscent of Ocean Beach from GTA Vice City. The street runs sandwiched between a coastal road and a sandy beach. This area houses many prominent hotels & boutiques. The literal meaning of the street — promenade — can be pretty easily construed, because couples love to promenade along the beach’s length. A common sight here is couples strolling along with children or them taking the dog out for a lazy ramble.
La Croisette also features many play areas for children at its [literal] ends. The place is a haven for free events & activities, such as music festivals & lively concerts & pretty much everything that fits in between. Delicatessens & beach clubs frequently dot the beach, & are tending to proliferate the area. The street is mostly attributed to its success of hosting massive music festivals like famous Palais des Festivals which is associated with the world-famous Cannes Film Festival. This boasts of flamboyance to the levels of red carpets sprawling the area. This street must indubitably not to be overlooked when you sojourn between cities.
The city never became the most luxurious places France could ever harbour for nothing. It never fails to pull a crowd with its array of luxury stores such as Chanel or Louis Vuitton, & also features five-star hotels like the iconic Carlton Hotel, Le Grand Hotel, Le Canberra Hotel & Splendid Hotel – a great combination with a luxury car hired from a reputable company in Cannes. And after you’re done indulging in all the pleasantries the street has to offer, you can relax under the shade of the palm and call it a day.
