Towards the end of July, the deliciously warm, elegant Riviera city of Nice spends a week basking in the glow of the world's best-loved jazz music, performed throughout the day by local and international artists amongst the sunny olive groves and in the impressive Roman amphitheatre. The evening performances are given by internationally renowned jazz artists and last well into the Mediterranean nights, and the event's informal atmosphere allows visitors to explore markets, food stalls and impromptu street performances as well as to hear some of the best live jazz on earth.

For a selection of the best places to stay in Nice, visit The Hotel Guru.
