Try everything they've got in the city. 3 - 5 nights is more than enough as Cannes isn't that big unless you'd like to take Monaco - Nice - Ile de Lerins - Grass - Antibes, etc tour.

You would find endless beautiful people at every corner and the smiley faces would keep you in the good mood. It's a mild place suitable for all kind...
