Spring and summer are the most popular times of the year to visit the city, so book your flights in the autumn or winter to save but still enjoy sunny, mild weather.

You can make a trip to Nice fit any budget. The city is very walkable, so you can admire the beautiful architecture of the Old Town by foot. Explore the local markets and bakeries for budget-friendly eats or to enjoy a picnic on the beach. Some of the city’s best attractions are free, like the Promenade des Anglais and Castle Hill.
