The Cimiez Arenas and Gardens are deemed the traditional place where the Nice Jazz festival is organized. Yet, it seems the organizers envisage other high rated venues in Nice able to accommodate the performances and the related events occasioned by the festival, such as Place Massena, Theatre de Verdure and the Albert I Garden.

Held each year in early July, the festival has already become a tradition on the French Riviera, since its first edition was set up in 1948. The Nice Jazz Festival is a must-do for all jazz enthusiasts who happen to vacation in Nice in July, given both its historical background and European prestige. Without overstating, the Nice Jazz Festival is a landmark of the European jazz agenda.
