Nice enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate so expect plenty of sunshine, mild winters and moderate rainfall.

Summer (June to August) is hot with plenty of sunshine. This is the best time to visit Nice if you want to swim in the warm ocean and enjoy great festivals. However, hotel prices also go up in line with the thermometer (averaging around 27°C/82°F in July).

Autumn (September to November) is quieter in Nice. October and November are also the wettest months. With temperatures dropping to 13°C (55°F) in November, be sure to pack some warm jumpers for the cool evenings.
