The Tour de France Finish
There’s no better day to be in Paris than when the final leg of the Tour de France swings into town. After three weeks, 21 stages and over 2,000 miles, the world’s most epic bike race hits the streets of the capital, finishing with eight frantic circuits of legendary avenue the Champs-Élysées. Arrive early on Sunday 24 July to bag your spot and watch the cyclists flash by!
The 103rd edition of Le Tour kicked off on 2 July with a dramatic race from postcard-pretty Mont-Saint-Michel to WW2 site Utah Beach. After punishing pedaling, death-defying sprints, exhausting mountain climbs and vertiginous descents, the last day is a special one. Successful riders will celebrate their wins as they roll into Paris, quaffing Champagne and posing for snaps (already decided should be the King of the Mountains polka dot jersey, the green sprint jersey and overall winner the famed yellow jersey).
