The beautiful, mild, sunny Mediterranean weather of the French Riviera has attracted tourists and has inspired painters, writers and architects for hundreds of years.
The best time to visit the French Riviera is naturally relative and depends on each traveler's interests. Visiting in May through early July will normally allow you to enjoy the beautiful weather (though the water is still a little cold) without an overwhelming tourist rush and traffic jams. This time slot would also allow you to be in the Riviera during some exciting events such as the International Film Festival in Cannes, and the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix.
August is certainly the peak of tourist season in the French Riviera. The weather is ussually perfect this time of year but remember that it will be crowded.
If you are visiting in the winter, keep in mind that some hotels and restaurants are closed from November to February.
