Palme d’Or

Since 1946 every year at the Festival de Cannes the best movies, actors and scripts are awarded, with the Palme d’Or as the most important trophy. We all know the yearly pictures of celebrities waving from the red carpet in front of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès at Cannes. You can find the Palais directly at the harbor after strolling through the nice streets of the city center and discovering the roofed markets of Cannes.

During the year there is typically not so much to see at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès but people get there for the French equivalent to the Walk of Fame at Los Angeles: In front of the Palais you can find the handprints of famous directors and actors like Luc Besson, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Dennis Hopper, Angelina Jolie, Meg Ryan, Anthony Quinn or Cameron Diaz.
