How will you travel to in Cannes, France?

Travel to Cannes

Travel to Cannes by Train

The easiest way to arrive in Cannes from all over France and Europe is to simply travel by train. Due to the pandemic, some restrictions are in place to enter France. You can enter France from the European Area, and from Australia, South Korea, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Singapore with a negative PCR test result of less than 72 hours. For travelers in the provenance of other countries, you will need a compelling reason to enter Metropolitan France, a negative PCR test result of less than 72 hours and to isolate for 7 to 10 days depending on the situation of your origin country. 

A sanitary pass is studied to allow fully vaccinated travelers to enter France more easily. 

Travel to Cannes by Air

The easiest way to travel to Cannes from far and especially from the US is by air. The  

Nice Cote d’Azur Airport is located at less than 30min from the Palais des Festivals in Cannes. The same measures of travel by train are applicable to travel by air. 

Transport in Cannes

Once you’ll arrive in Cannes, you will have multiple choices to move around: 

  • Soft mobility: on presentation of the badge, you will have access to public transport in the City of Cannes.
  • The fleet of official cars: the Festival makes official cars available for the film industry professionals.
  • The taxis and private car services that strictly follow the COVID-19 safety measures.  

Sanitary protocols

All the transport actors are involved to offer safe travel and to fight the spread of the virus. Nice Cote d’Azur Airport has just obtained ACI Health Accreditation. The SNCF has developed a COVID 19 protocol to keep you safe in train stations and aboard their trains. Taxis and buses have put in place protective measures.

Environment commitments

The Cannes Film Festival commits for the environment in consultation with the firm Green Evenements. The 74th Festival will take 12 significant measures to reduce waste and carbon emissions, recover residual materials and offset the carbon footprint. Among them, a fleet of official cars composed of 60% electric and hybrid vehicles, a soft mobility incentive, an environmental contribution from the Festival to compensate for the footprint of the event’s production, and an environmental contribution of €20 from festival-goers to compensate for the footprint of their travel and accommodation.
