Located near the French Mediterranean the area of Nîmes has some of truly exceptional weather year round. The peak tourist season is in the summer months of July and August when the warm sun of the south of France brings the tourists from near and far. Yet it is seldom too hot even on the sunniest days. The temperatures average from the low to mid 80s during the daytime hours, and tend to cool off as the sun goes down to the mid 60s at night. Located not far from the Mediterranean Sea the city generally has a mild climate right through much of year. Summer tends to be the driest months as well, but there is never an exceptionally wet time however.

Spring and autumn both feature excellent weather, with temperatures that can still reach the upper 60s to around 70 degrees during the day, and only fall into the high 40s at night.

Winters are also a great time to visit as well, when you can explore the city off-season and take in the rich historic past. Daytime temperatures can still be well into the 50s during the day, and the city seldom reaches freezing.
