Destination Essentials

While Nice's charm is year-round, the summer months of June to September offer the best weather — hot, sunny, and perfect for lazing on the beaches or taking a dip in the Mediterranean. These months draw in tourists creating a lively atmosphere throughout the city.

For cooler, quieter holidays, consider visiting Nice during the Autumn or early Spring. Attractions remain open, and the area still gets plenty of sunshine. If the Nice Carnival in February or the Nice Jazz Festival in July aligns with your preferences, these would be opportune times to visit.
