Nice enjoys an exceptional microclimate which contributes to its eminence, with more than 300 days of sunny days. The average temperature in Nov. 2016/2017 was 13,5°c. November in Nice is characterised by long, often sun-filled days and a crisp coastal chill. The city is fairly empty after the final summer tourists have left, and it's the perfect time to visit to explore all the cultural attractions as well as soak up some final autum sun before winter sets in.
