Cannes – myths busted

In my imagination, Cannes must be very fancy and glamorous -- you know, with the world's most prestigious film festival, the red carpets, the Hollywood stars and all that. The truth is that in the absence of celebrities, Cannes is just a peaceful and picturesque beach town. You can leisurely walk along the promenade without being disturbed by thousands of teens act crazily outside the Festival Palace or being stopped for security checks every street corner.
