Best time to visit Cannes, France?

  • The best time to visit Cannes is during the early fall when temperatures are still warm and weather is still dry but hotels are a lot cheaper. During this time, expect to pay around $165/night for an accommodation for 2. That's half of the normal price in August. Temperatures are in the mid 70s, just a bit colder than the average 80°F you could experience during peak season.
  • Tourism peaks in Cannes in the summer, which comes with higher hotel and rental rates. If you're on a budget, try avoiding the FIF week (May 9th - 21st), the MIPIM week (March 12th - 17th) as well as the MIPCOM week (October 15th - 21st) since accommodation rates peak the most during these times.
  • Be prepared for the rain if you travel to Cannes in October and November, since there are 12 days with precipitation each month on average.
