    CANNES is a French commune located in the department of Alpes-Maritimes and the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. It is is one of the best-known cities of the French Riviera in southeastern France. Located on the Mediterranean Sea, it is 22 miles (36 km) from Nice, 34 miles (55 km) from Monaco and 37 miles (60 km) from the Italian border. Essentially a modern resort town, it was originally settled by Celts, Greeks, and Romans. Along with the Lérins Islands, it has had a long involvement with monastic Christianity, although most of the city’s growth has occurred since the mid-1800s, when it became popular as a winter resort for the British. It is a busy tourist destination and host of the annual Cannes Film Festival, during which time its population swells from 70,000 to nearly 170,000. The city is also famous for its luxury shops, restaurants, and hotels.

    At the end of the 19th century, several railways were completed. This prompted the arrival of streetcars. In Cannes, projects such as the Boulevard Carnot, the rue d'Antibes and the Carlton Hotel on the Promenade de la Croisette were carried out. After the closure of the Casino des Fleurs (hôtel Gallia), a luxury establishment was built for the rich winter clientele, the Casino Municipal next to the pier Albert-Edouard. This casino was demolished and replaced by the new Palace in 1979. With the 20th century came new luxury hotels such as the Miramar and the Martinez. The city was modernised with a sports centre, street cars, a post office, and schools. There were fewer British and German tourists after the First World War but more Americans. Winter tourism gave way to summer tourism and the summer casino at the Palm Beach was constructed.

    The CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (French: Le Festival International du Film de Cannes or just Festival de Cannes), is an annual film festival held in Cannes, France, which previews new films of all genres, including documentaries, from around the world. Founded in 1946, it is one of the most prestigious and publicised film festivals in the world alongside those of Venice and Berlin. The invitation-only festival is held annually (usually in May) at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès.

    The Promenade de LA CROISETTE (or Boulevard de la Croisette) is a prominent road in Cannes, France. It stretches along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea and is about 2 km long. The Croisette is known for the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, where the Cannes Film Festival (Le Festival International du Film de Cannes) is held. Many expensive shops, restaurants, and hotels line the road. It goes completely along the coastline of Cannes. The Croisette is listed in the cultural heritage general inventory of France.
