Best time to visit Nice
For pleasant weather, low room rates and fewer tourists, visit Nice during the months of September and October (autumn). Even though temperatures are descending, they average around the mid to low 20’s during these months. A popular event that you can enjoy in this period is Nice Regattas, in September. Another good time to go is from mid-March to April (spring). While the coolness of the winter lingers, the average monthly temperatures start to rise to the mid-teens. Events that you can check out include the Nice International Fair, in March, and the International Dog Show, in April.
May to August (summer) is the peak tourist season in Nice, and you will find this destination to be overcrowded during this time, with hot, humid weather and expensive room rates. Most of the festivals take place in this period though, including Fete de la Cuisine (May) and Festival du Livre (June). If you still want to visit during this time, make sure to book many months in advance.

The Centers for Disease Control recommend that you receive all the routine vaccinations four to six weeks before your trip to Nice. You may need vaccinations for other diseases, depending on what you’re doing and where you’ll be going in the city. These include vaccinations for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and rabies.
Beware of pickpockets, especially in crowded areas like buses, trains and tourist attractions. The train station is one area to be careful of as pickpockets target anyone who looks tired. Try to avoid carrying anything valuable, but if you have to, keep it in a secure place on your person and out of sight while exploring Nice. Additionally, refrain from walking anywhere alone at night.
