Tour de France FinaleTour de France Finale
Whether you're a cycling enthusiast or casual fan, the Tour de France Finale is a great sporting occasion with a unique atmosphere. Experience the 'grand finale’ of the world’s most famous cycling race as the riders enter Paris after covering a gruelling 3,656 kilometres!
Join the crowds to see the riders race along the banks of the River Seine and past the city’s iconic landmarks before a dramatic sprint to the finish, which also sees overall winner of the coveted yellow jersey crowned.
While the Grand Depart of the Tour de France and the route itself changes every year, the spectacular Champs Élysées always plays host to the spectacular finish. This final stage through the centre of Paris is the most prestigious of the Tour and sees the world’s best sprinters go head-to-head as they fight for the glory of being the first to complete the event.
Traditionally, the final stage starts with champagne served by the race leader's team and riders from all teams sharing a joke to celebrate the fact they have survived the Tour. But as the riders approach Paris, the racing heats up as the cyclists embark on eight laps of the city past the Arc De Triomphe, and the Louvre before heading past the Place de la Concorde to the Champs-Élysées.
You can also show your appreciation to the overall winner, who is traditionally escorted to the finish line with teammates, and see the presentation of the yellow jersey to the winner, the polka dot jersey to the ‘King of the Mountains’ and the green jersey to the Sprint Champion.
Booking with National Holidays is a great way to combine the spectacle of the Tour de France finale with a city break in the French capital, so you don’t need to worry about sorting the coach travel, hotel accommodation or tickets!
