Jena Hovor

As a travel expert who specializes in France, I am constantly amazed by the beauty, culture, and diversity of this incredible country. From the vibrant city of Paris to the stunning beaches of the French Riviera, there is something for everyone in France.

Over the centuries, Cannes grew in importance and prosperity, particularly during the 19th century, when it became a popular winter resort for wealthy aristocrats and artists.

Today, Cannes is a bustling city that attracts visitors from all over the world. In addition to its world-famous film festival, the city is known for its luxury shops, restaurants, and hotels. 

Despite its reputation as a playground for the rich and famous, Cannes has plenty of cultural attractions to offer as well. 

Cannes is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. The nearby Îles de Lérins, a group of small islands off the coast, are home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the region, as well as a 17th-century fort and a monastery. The hilltop village of Mougins is also worth a visit, known for its art galleries, restaurants, and beautiful views over the coast.

The itinerary that Jena designed for us was extremely helpful in organizing our days in the most comfortable and enjoyable way possible. Her recommendations for restaurants and gelato shops were spot-on, and we were able to easily follow the customized itinerary she created for us, complete with parking locations. We all had an amazing time exploring the stunning beauty of Italy. Thank you very much, Crystalina!

If you're planning a trip to France, do yourself a favor and enlist Jena's help. She provided us with an enriching and detailed itinerary that was unbelievably accurate. In addition to the usual tourist spots, Crystalina also introduced us to some special places that we wouldn't have discovered otherwise. Each of her recommendations came with a reference to Google Maps and Wise maps, complete with accurate directions to parking lots and other important details. She even provided detailed information on attraction prices, opening hours, and recommendations for local restaurants.
