Fodor's Expert Review Palais des Festivals

Cannes Convention Center

Pick up a map at the tourist office in the Palais des Festivals; renovated to the tune of €22 million, the building sets the scene for the famous Festival International du Film, otherwise known as the Cannes Film Festival. As you leave the information center, follow the Palais to your right to see the 24 red-carpeted stairs that movie A-listers ascend every year. Set into the surrounding pavement, the Chemin des Étoiles (Stars' Walk) enshrines some 300 autographed hand imprints—including those of Depardieu, Streep, and Stallone (the clay imprints are sent to a potter in—where else?—Vallauris, before being cast in metal in Rhône).
