Although its luxury shops, nightlife, casinos, and high-end restaurants give Cannes a feeling of exclusivity, this classic French Riviera city has alternatives to suit every budget.

There's still lots to do: head off the coast to Lérins Islands, don't miss a visit to Rue Meynadier, look for gifts at Lavallie Bijoux et Joaillerie, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Clock Tower of Notre-Dame de l'Esperance.
