Bon voyage, busy marketers, rushing to Cannes Lions 2019. But before you hop on that plane, we help you cross one more thing off your heavy to-do list and give you a 24-hour itinerary, outlining the best Cannes
AList takes you all around town (and beyond) for an unforgettable experience on the French Riviera and can assure you, there will be no shortage of adventure.
09:00 – 9:30
Enjoy a cup of cappuccino and a chocolate croissant at café La Californie. Pick a spot inside the old brick building or a street-adjacent patio seat.
10:00 – 12:00
Partake in Cannes’ retail offerings. We recommend checking out French pharmacies for beauty products and Clergerie for a pair of beach-appropriate shoes.
12:00 – 13:00
As the day heats up, you’ll want to cool off. We recommend renting a scooter at Yourent Cannes and zipping through the picturesque Sainte Agnes.
13:00 – 14:00
Time to eat again. Pick up a fresh baguette (from any grocer) and some cheese from local fromagerie Ceneri Cannes. Find some shade at one of the sea-view terraces and pair the meal with some infamous Provence rosé. But don’t drink too much, you have a lot to do.
14:00 – 16:00
The heat is on. Get your hands messy with ice-cream from Gelato Junkie. Jump in the sea afterward to cool off and clean off. Then, very importantly, take a much-needed nap because you’ll need it for the long night ahead.
16:00 – 18:00
Make sure to set your alarm to catch the golden hour. The light splays perfectly for all your Instagram needs. Head to the oldest part of the city, Le Suquet, to see candy-colored houses juxtaposed with gothic-style architecture.
19:00 – 21:00
Visit Le Troquet À Soupes for dinner. We recommend getting some raclette and the tartare charolais au couteau. You might even catch some local chanson.
21:00 – 23:00
All nights in Cannes start (or end?) at 72 Croisette, also known as “the Gutter Bar.” You’ll know the place by its neon-lit ‘72’ sign that faces the street corner—guests will spill out onto that same street as the night goes on.
23:00 – 24:00
For an upscale cocktail hit garage-turned-bar Le Tube.
24:00 – 3:00
Time to dance. Head to newly-opened Gotha Club on the edge of Pointe Croissette and bathe in the neon light while dancing the night away.
