While Muslim tourists will not be able to find a prayer room at the Palais des Festivals et des Congres, the building is home to a number of rooms. Muslim visitors can therefore ask the staff if they could use one of these empty halls or rooms to offer their prayers. As the city of Cannes is home to a few mosques, they can also ask to be directed to the nearest one, if needed.
While Muslim tourists may be able to locate a few Halal restaurants in Cannes, they may not be able to find Halal food at major tourist attractions. Since the Palais des Festivals et des Congres is located on Boulevard de la Croisette; tourists will find numerous restaurants here. These restaurants may not serve Halal food, but Muslim tourists can dine on the seafood and vegetarian options available. They must however make sure that the items they order do not consist of any non-Halal ingredients.
