Great weather is one of the main reasons the French Riviera has attracted so many people to its shores during the last two centuries. For example, Nice boasts some 2900 hours of sunshine every year. The French Riviera is rarely cold or hot. Menton on the Italian border has the best climate of all with mild temperatures and almost no rains. The Riviera is specially appreciated by retired people in winter when most of Europe is much colder. The French Riviera is rarely struck by winds or snow. Bad luck if this happens during your stay.
