Cannes

Cannes is a French city, located on the Mediterranean coast, and host of the annual Cannes Film Festival. Besides the festival, the city is known as a location for luxury shopping and hotels.

TGV services travel to/from Gare de Cannes, linking the city with other major destinations within France. International and national coach services also serve the city, arriving at Gare Routiere de Cannes. 

How to get to Cannes from
Route 1:

The high-speed TGV service from Lille Europe to Nice takes around 7-8 hours, passing through the whole length of the French countryside.

There are only two services a day in either direction. A more frequent alternative journey, Paris - Nice (TGV) is also available, but can be a little more inconvenient than the Lille - Nice option if you are coming from a connecting train due to the cross-city Metro change at Paris.

Route 2:

The high-speed TGV service from Paris to Nice and Ventimiglia takes around 6 hours, passing through almost the whole length of the French countryside. An alternative journey, Lille - Nice (TGV) is also available, but generally terminates at Nice. The direct service to Ventimiglia doesn't run as often as services terminating at Nice, as shown in the Timetables section.
