Sunday 29th July – Paris Champs Elysees:
Due to the high profile of the last day and of course its setting in the very centre of Paris, the final stage is prestigious. The overall General Classification is usually decided before the final stage but winning on the Champs Elysees is a glorious feat. Sometimes the points classification and the green jersey winner is decided on the final day.
When the riders reach central Paris, they enter the Champs-Élysées via the Rue de Rivoli on to the Place de la Concorde and then the Champs-Élysées itself. The riders will do a total of 8 laps on a circuit which goes from the Arc de Triomphe, down the Champs-Élysées, round Les Tuilleries and the Louvre and across the Place de la Concorde back to the Champs-Élysées.
On Sunday, enjoy a leisurely breakfast, then the day can be spent at your own leisure enjoying the sights of Paris. Late afternoon, walk the short distance from the hotel to the Champs Elysees. You will see the passage of the Tour de France Publicity Caravan, followed by the arrival of the 2018 Tour de France. The riders will complete 8 laps of a circuit based on the Champs Elysees. We can offer a variety of official Tour de France Grandstand seats and hospitality packages on the Champs Elysees for the 2018 Tour de France (see here for more information and prices).
