TOUR DE FRANCE 2018

Paris Hospitality Experiences

29th July 2018

Every year the Tour de France, the biggest cycling event in the world, has its spectacular finale on the Champs Elysees in the centre of Paris.
Due to the high profile of the last day, the final stage of Le Tour is very prestigious, usually culminating in an exhilarating race for the finish between the worlds’ top sprinters! You can be there too experiencing Tour de France Hospitality and VIP access!
The overall General Classification of the Tour de France is usually decided before the final stage but winning on the Champs Elysees is a glorious feat and is celebrated with lots of pomp and ceremony.  Sometimes the winner of the points classification and therefore green jersey winner is decided on the final day. When the Tour 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.

Your options in brief:

Tour de France Tribune Elysee – Price: £389 per person:
