The best time to visit France is April-October, though August can be a bit hot. The cities then tend to empty out and close down as everyone heads to the coast or other vacation spots; service suffers during this period.
Day temperatures range from the mid-60s to the 80s F/23-37 C, with nights in the 50s-70s F/10-27 C. Temperatures generally increase as you go south; the extreme south is 10 F/6 C warmer on average. May and October are the nicest months for touring, but it's often too cool to lie on the beach, even on the Riviera.
The currency in France is the Euro. Sometimes you can convert money at your local bank but if not there will be kiosk at most abroad airports.
France is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time and 6 hours ahead of eastern time.
Paris is the fashion capital of the world, so Parisians are understandably more concerned with looking well-groomed and stylish at all times, but especially at dinner or the theater. Save the shorts, sneakers and tank tops for daytime sightseeing, if then. Outside of Paris, the French are generally less concerned about fashion rules, but they still remain somewhat averse to shorts and baseball caps except at the beach. Always err on the formal side when dining in a fine restaurant, doing business, or shopping in luxury stores. As for the climate, there are rarely sure bets on the weather in any region of France. Mild winters and damp summers can be followed by icy spring winds or gorgeous sunny autumn days. Layering is always recommended, and wind-resistant jackets are a must in windy coastal regions such as Normandy and Brittany.
