Any time of year is excellent for heading to St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, at least in terms of the weather ( http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g18... ), but for travelers looking to spend time enjoying the annual events in the area, the best time of year to plan a trip there is in the summer.  Throughout the summer, the area comes alive with increased tourism and numerous small events.  Festivals and feasts take place all throughout the warmer months and visitors will find that they are never lacking for something to do.

One of the most favorite annual events among many people is the opera-in-the-round event which takes place each August.   The gardens of the Ephrussi de Rothschild mansion ( http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g18... ) become home to the local opera for an evening which culminates in a moonlit dinner with the performers.   More information about this event, which is open primarily to the elite, is available online at http://www.azuriales-opera.com/Docume... .
