When to go
Nice is a great place to visit in the summer, but thanks to its Mediterranean climate it’s a fantastic destination during the shoulder seasons too, from March to April and September to October. The winter can get quite cold despite the majority of sunny days throughout the year. It is often recommended to take some layers with you on your holiday to Nice, as it can be quite windy being along the coast.
