Cannes Culture

The people of France are not oriented with time. The French are very mellow and take time out to enjoy fine dining and taking time out for themselves. In France lunch breaks can be anywhere up to 2 hours and you will notice restaurants filled with people during this time sipping wine. Food is a huge part of the culture in France. Almost anything you will eat has chocolate drizzled on it. Chocolate croissants, chocolate cereal, and chocolate crepes, now this is the life! The people

of France can be a little arrogant but if you ask nicely they are more than willing to help you out. French is the official language, with very few people speaking English. Before traveling to France, try to learn a few everyday phrases so that you won’t struggle finding someone who actually speaks English.
