It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Nice

Peak Season: mid-May to mid-September

If swimming is high on your agenda, plan your trip between June and September, when temps average in the mid-70s. Warning: the summer high season is hot, humid, and marked by overpowering crowds, bumper-to-bumper traffic, and sky-high air-and-hotel costs.

Off Season: November to mid-March

While low-season winters are mild (averaging about 50°F), you’ll still need a light jacket swimming isn’t an option – on rare instances, Nice has even seen sprinklings of snow. Nice’s famous Carnival celebration draws crowds in February.

Sweet Spot: mid-March to mid-May; mid-September to October

Spring or early fall trips provide the best bang for your buck. Temperatures in the low 60s are perhaps too cold for a dip, but are just right for sunbathing and sightseeing. Hotel rates are also comfortably lower.
