    Typically, many Parisians leave the city in July and August for their summer vacations, but there is still plenty going on. Off top of my head, here are a few ideas: Bastille Day is on July 14 and features parades, a military display, and fireworks; Paris' Jazz Festival runs till July 29 (various events listed here: http://parisjazzfestival.paris.fr/en/); the final processional stage of the Tour de France rolls into Paris and up the Champs-Elysees on July 22; head down to the Seine to enjoy the scene of the annual Paris "plage", when sand and other seaside activities arrive for four weeks each summer, starting around July 20. Bon voyage!

    While this answer is correct, at Charles de Gualle there are only SFR stores. SFR is a carrier in France and, as most carriers, the rates are high. Example, 0.55 Euros to call within France and 0.75 back to the US and Canada. The best solution is with Mobiho. Their rates are 0.18 to call within France or back to the US or Canada. They are also available before you go at Amazon or at www.cellularabroad.com

    Given that you'll be traveling in Europe's "shoulder season," I suspect you should be just fine, though I'd recommend you do your homework and have some places in mind in case you're not turning up anything good while on the road. One other idea would be to download a few city-specific apps (if you have a smartphone) for places you'll be visiting. This way you'll have this info in your pocket for when you roll into town at 5 p.m. and need to know the nearest hotel or guesthouse. Just be sure to check the fine print about roaming charges and offline data availability for maps and info in the app. Sutro Media, mTrip, and Lonely Planet all offer good downloadable apps for most major European cities, including Paris, Brussels, Brudges, etc. Lastly, if you're felling adventurous, take a look at sites like AirBnB.com or CouchSurfing.org. The New York Times has a good overview how these sites work here: http://nyti.ms/2XRyLF
