Activities & excursions in Cannes

Discover the beautiful Côte d’Azur during your language stay in Cannes.

Excursions & activities during your French language courses in Cannes

As many students attend our intensive courses in the afternoons, we can only organize activities and excursions occasionally. We like to meet at the end of the day on the beach, during firework evenings, during occasional excursions such as Grasse perfumery, Cannes islands, Saint-Raphaël and its magnificent scenic coastal landscape, Antibes, Nice or Monaco.


Make sure to get your Côte d’Azur activity pass either online or on the spot (from the tourist office or from your hotel) to enjoy activities and excursions at a reduced price. 

Thanks to our location in the heart of French Riviera, you will find plenty of activities and excursions to do on your own after your French courses.
