The Location: Cannes You Believe It?
Cannes, France is a coastal city located in the French Riviera known for luxury and the arts. It’s also home to the famous international Cannes Film Festival, and with nearly 300 days of sunshine annually, it’s the perfect place to spend the summer. While not in class, you can walk down the Promenade de la Croisette and see Cannes’ sandy beaches, luxury hotels, and more. Not to mention, it’s well connected to France and the rest of Europe via plane, trains, and buses, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities for new adventures!
