The information shown on this page is based on historical averages and may not reflect current conditions. Check with local authorities for the latest travel recommendations.

The best time to travel to France is from April to June and from September to November. On the plus side, there are fewer visitors and temperatures are moderate compared to the sweltering summer weather. If skiing is your thing, enjoy the ski resorts from December through April.

February falls in the middle of the ski season, so expect the resorts to be quite crowded with families traveling during school vacations. While temperatures in the Alps reach below freezing, in the rest of the country the average is 5 °C (41 °F). Many couples travel to Paris for Valentine’s Day, but there is so much more to do in February.

As spring arrives, the warmer weather becomes conducive to cultural events and celebrations. The days can be quite warm, but the nights are chilly, so dress in layers to stay warm. Bring an umbrella if you go to the capital in May because, during this month, Paris is the rainiest city and Nice the driest.

The biggest challenge to travel in France today is the high price of fuel. In the supermarkets there is a variety of products at an affordable price and there is the possibility of free camping.HERE is our budget for a 6 month trip in Europe.

We are surprised that a country like France has all or almost all toll roads and that the price of tolls is so high. It is true that if you travel without haste this is not an impediment because it is much more beautiful and adventurous to drive on the roads parallel to the highway but if otherwise you want to go faster driving will be very heavy by the large number of speed bumps, traffic circles and villages that cross these roads in addition to the large number of radars.Speed:50 km / h in the city80 km / h outside the city130 km / h on highways (toll) and 110 km / h when it rains.
