Here is a visual step-by-step tutorial on popular and common street signs in France. It is very important to get familiar with these before you visit, as it can help guide you when driving or walking, help you in an emergency, or simply make life easier when visiting France.

I will begin with one of the most important signs for a tourist, especially when you need it. The sign for restrooms can vary, but this green "toilettes" sign is a typical one pointing to public restrooms. Also look for signs that state "W.C." to lead you to a restroom. Be sure you have change handy, as it is common for public restrooms to be paid.
