How to Get there


  • By train: The best way to get to the event. The Cannes Train Station is served by both high-speed TGV services and local TER trains (on the Marseille–Ventimiglia railway). It is very central within Cannes and gives easy access to the shopping streets and markets. Timetables here.

  • By bus: Express Bus 81 (from Cote d'Azur Express Buses) goes direct from Nice Airport Terminal 2 to Cannes train station (and takes 50 minutes). There is free public transport during the event, via PalmBus. The Palm Express A Bus connects Cannes Station with the Cineum. Find here the daytime hours and night hours.

  • By car: If you really must (but I warn you will be busy!) leave the A8 Autoroute at “La Provençale” (exit 41) signed 'Cannes La Bocca' or exit 42 signed 'Mougins / Cannes (center)' and follow signs for the centre of town. Benefit from a preferential rate at the Cœur Croisette Gray d'Albion car park: book in advance via the Interparking website: https://www.interparking-france.com/parking-cannes/fr/park/parking-gray-dalbion/ with promo code PLAGES30
