The Tour de France arrives in Paris, Sunday 28th July 2019

The 2019 Tour de France finally arrives in Paris on Sunday, and this year it’s passing really close to our hotels!

It’s the end of a long journey for the cyclists, and an unforgettable moment for the fans – the Tour de France ends in Paris this Sunday, with a route that’s a little out of the ordinary.

For once, the cyclists will be passing in front of the Luxembourg Gardens (super close to our hotels!), before descending boulevard Saint-Michel, crossing the Seine and cycling through the courtyards of the Louvre, right past the pyramid.

Make sure you’re in the area around 8pm (or a lot earlier, if you want to have a good view) so you can witness the event close up!

Arrivée de la Tour de France sur les Champs-Élysées, dimanche 28 juillet 2019

This year is also the centenary of the yellow jersey, and there’s a special walk being organised on the Champs Élysées to celebrate.

Starting at 1.30pm, you can walk a 7km circuit, part of the route the cyclists will be racing down later in the day. Signing up only costs 5€, and you’ll receive a limited edition t-shirt (yellow, of course) at the end!
