Musee Bonnard

Reviewed By SFGAL8 - San Francisco, California

The Musee Bonnard is a lovely and light space for the viewing of Bonnard's art. We happened to attend when in addition to the permanent exhibition there was also a temperory exhibit from the D'Orsay in Paris. Enjoyed it very much.

Spend an hour and see how ancient art can influence and mix with modern. What a wonderful collection that was donated! Really a fun experience. However, the lighting needs a bit of work in order to identify all of the works.

Iles de Lerins

Two Islands just a boat ride from Cannes, Ste-Marguerite and St-Honorat, are covered by eucalyptus and pine Forests and are home to Fort Royal.

Reviewed By janeds - Newport, United Kingdom

Took the boat from the port across to the island and had a lovely day out. There is a snack bar and a full restaurant on the island and plenty to see. Just follow the trail and you come across the Abbey where the monks make their wine and there is a gift shop. The ruins of the previous monastery are on the sea’s edge and are well worth a climb up to explore. There are rocky coves around the island where you can have a dip to cool off.

Musee National Picasso La Guerre et La Paix

Reviewed By Lazy L - London, United Kingdom

Appreciate that the collections on display here will vary, but nonetheless disappointed with our recent return visit to this small Picasso museum. On a previous visit (over 10 years ago) we found a very interesting collection of Picasso pottery themed around fish designs on plates. This time, no such luck, and nothing in the pottery that was memorable. We were curious about the "War and Peace" painting, but having seen the images that make up this painting in their original components elsewhere it came across as a rather poor cousin, albeit an interesting one. Would not make a special trip just to see this, but as part of a general visit to the pottery street it is worth stopping in.

Palais Princier Monaco

Reviewed By Andreea G

Pro:
- audioguide in different languages, included in the price.
- very good and extensive explications in the audioguide for each room we visited.
Contra:
- there are 2 lines to get in. They ignored the one for "individuals" several times and let the "groups" one in, even through it was clear as day that the individuals line was much-much longer. It was a total dissrespect for the ones that was waiting for 20-30 minutes to get in.
- the tour is quite short, there are 13 rooms you get to visit.

Reviewed By komodo8297 - London

If you get tired of busy Cannes, visit Ile Saint Honorat. It is very calm and quiet island. Take a stroll around the island, visit Abbey and nearby shop with products made by monks or one of four churches and fortress with beautiful views. If...MoreThank you for sharing these few lines. It's a perfect summary of what you can do on the island. Do not hesitate to have a look on our program for a future visit.

I wouldn't call this a tourist attraction thing to do! It's basically someone's house that's had a cartoon painted on the side It's quirky and it's free to have a look but that's about all there is to it

Very difficult to find. Very little publicity made around this little chapel dating from the 17th century, painted by Churchill, visited by Picasso who lived nearby for 12 years. Unfortunately it is not open to the public.

Le Suquet

Reviewed By luis v

Nice little place in Cannes old town. We were wandering around looking for a nice place to eat. We had the 27€ fixed menu (included appetizer, main entree and dessert). Everything was fantastic and more than enough. I’d say it’s a great catch and service is also pretty good. I’d definitively recommend it. Two thumbs up.

We are a group of escape-rooms beginners (between 0 and 3 rooms each) so most of the tricks of the trade are still new to us so I'll mostly report on the experience of the prison room we tried, without telling too much :)
Escaping from it was a good thrilling experience and it made you think of all the prison movies you could have watched.
We were a multicultural group (English + French) so if you are in that case, that might be an issue if you don't have any French speaker among you. Aside that, language won't help for solving the problems - you basically need to be able to count from 0 to 9 in French and English. Hints were given in French (but if that would be a problem, check with the reception before booking).
The staff was very friendly. The reception is very nice and you can wait for your turn in very comfortable armchairs while you wait for your room.
Be careful though: (in July 2016): as the game begins before reaching the place - to get locked up :)
They opened very recently so the place was really hard to find and not showing up on Google Map yet. They didn't have a big billboard yet.
Don't hesitate to plan extra time to get there before your time slot begins as, if you come by car and miss the entrance, it risks taking you a good 15min to try again due to the road configuration there.
Your visual clue (at time of writing) could be the 'Norisko Auto' center or 'Cannes Car Wash' - it's in that small commercial zone, on the back of the building and on the top floor.
