Juan-les-Pins is one of the most beautiful places on the Cote d'Azur. Orange trees grow right on the streets here. Like in Morocco. I went on a tour of the city located in the heart of the continent in 10 kilometers from the coast. In Saint Paul de Vence - the town of artists. The town seemed...

We are going from Juan-les-Pins to  Cannes on a double-decker train. We are obviously on the 2nd deck! The road takes just 8 minutes. It's so nice to ride a train and look in the window, but the windows are very dirty. They have fences too. Look how the trees are trimmed! Poles...
We returned to  Cannes  from  the Ile Saint-Honorat . We're about to go eat somewhere. Seagull is eating something. Why did you have to frighten the bird? Never mind, it came back later. There's McDonald's on the left, let's go and eat something. Here you can choose...

Cannes  is a famous French city, and by chance, I came here to celebrate Christmas. We all watched Hollywood movies with a vivid depiction of the holiday. Or rather, not so much the holiday as Christmas spirit and romance. I flew to  France Cannes  to find both. I wanted to...
Cannes is primarily associated with the film festival, red carpets, and the world's movie stars. But today, I want to show the real Cannes. Cannes is a resort town on the French shore of the sea. Frankly speaking, the people don't want for anything; a lot of yachts and boats are ...
