Sping in Nice is a fantastic time to visit the city for experiencing the culture and beauty of the city without the tourist crowds.
The warm but not too hot weather means that walking around the area is more enjoyable and there are fewer people in the area, meaning that there are less likely to be crowds of tourists at all the major attractions.
For those who have the stamina, April is the month during which the Nice Half Marathon takes place along the Promenade des Anglais. If you don't fancy the four mile run, why not go along to watch instead.
