Cities and towns on the Cote d'Azur were not really designed to accommodate cars and can get congested during the peak summer period. Self-drive is better suited to driving along the scenic coastal road, Route du Bord de Mer, for visits to St Tropez and Monaco as well as inland to the pristine vistas of Mercantour National Park. Driving is on the right-hand side.
Drivers opting for car rental in Nice Airport are able to see more than Nice's Promenade des Anglais. In Monte Carlo the royal palace, casinos and the Oceanographic Museum are among the attractions. Beaches and picturesque ports line the coastal route and include Antibes and St Raphael. Mercantour's 3,000 metre peaks hide diverse wildlife, scenic walking paths and lakes.
Nice boasts a balmy climate with temperatures that rarely drop below 14°C even at the height of the so-called winter months from December to February. In July and August it is hot, frequently 32°C plus, and crowded. Those who prefer cooler weather and fewer people should probably avoid these months, but any other time of year is comfortable in Nice.
