When to go
To be, or not to be in doors.
The summer months (June - August) bring the best weather, but with them, an influx of tourists. In Spring (March - May) and Autumn (Sept-Nov) the prices are a little lower and the streets less crowded making this an ideal time of year to visit. The autumn foliage in October is exquisite. Winter is the perfect time to head to the snowy French Alps for an active skiing honeymoon.
What your Euro is worth
The Euro. 1 Euro = 100 cents.
Communication is the key
Keep it real
France is a safe country. The most common crimes against tourists are thieving and pick-pocketing. Keep your valuables within sight and be extra vigilant in busy tourist spots.
