Weather in Nice, France during July

nice franceJuly is the hottest month in Nice. You can expect an average of 14 hours sunshine and there is very little chance of rain (16% chance of rain and on average it only rains on 3-4 days during July). The sea temperature is also pretty good (around 23°C/74F) - which certainly makes it warm enough to swim in the sea.

Nice has a round 5kms of beaches, all along the famous Promenade des Anglais. A lot of the beaches are private (but you can enter if you pay). The public beaches are however free, but they are predominantly stoney beaches. So you are best advised to hire a lounger, unless you enjoy the feel of scorching stones on skin. 

What to do in Nice in July

nice summer fountains franceNice attracts over 30% of the tourists visiting the French Riviera each year (some 5 million visitors).  Nice has one of the highest number of museums in France after Paris (19 in total) and most of these are air conditioned. The best museums in Nice to visit include the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Marc Chagall Museum, the Matisse Museum and the Sport Museum.

But if it is especially hot, one good tip is to travel up to the North of Nice and visit the Phoenix Park. Here you will find not only a lovely park and ecological park, but you will also find the stunning Museum of Asian Art. A visit to Nice in July would also not be complete without the obligatory evening stroll along the Promenade des Anglais and a wander around Nice Old Town.
