4 Ideas for Activities & Sightseeing for the next fortnight

  1. Jazz e Brasil will inject some Latino rhythm in your afternoon on Saturday 30 April when the Cannes Bel Age Orchestra pairs with the Rio Ao Vivo Orchestra to bring a concert of jazz, Brazilian music and swing alongside capoeira and dancers.  3pm, Espace Miramar, rue Pasteur, Cannes

2.  The 26th Salon des Vignerons from 29 April-02 May at the Hippodrome in Cagnes-sur-Mer will host around 300 producers from various regions in France for a great show with wine tasting, seafood, cheeses, foie gras etc.  There is an onsite children’s play area at the venue if you take the kids along.

3.  Antibes Art Fair is still on until 02 May.  Make sure you visit if you like antiques, art and curiosities.

4. Fans of beautiful blooms should venture to the perfume capital of France, Grasse, from 03-08 May where the streets will be transformed for Expo Rose.

The queen of flowers – the rose – will take pride of place with 25000 roses decorating city fountains and monuments, sales of bouquets and rose bushes. This year’s theme is based on the revues of Music Hall so keep a look out for classic cars, parades and costumed actors.

Afterwards, head to Chocolaterie Maison Duplanteur, the only artisan chocolate factory in the region and try their unique Rose Chocolate (70% high end dark chocolate with rose petals from Grasse!).  They also have other yummy products such as ginger and orange tablettes, milk chocolate with banana and cashew nut and Grasse coat-of-arms with gilding.
