Pearl of the French Riviera
Most people don’t associate Cannes with backpacking holidays but actually, the majority of backpackers visiting the French Riviera from Marseille to Nice include Cannes in their trips. The city has numerous options for travelers of all ages and budgets, including backpackers. The areas between the main train station and la Croisette Boulevard and around Boulevard Carnot both offer a good choice of 2-star hotels from 45 euros per night. If you are at least spending a one-week backpacking holiday in Cannes, don’t hesitate to haggle for a better price. Good to know, the youth hostel Le Chalit located Avenue Marechal Galliéni provides dorm beds from 18 euros.
