Itinerary Detail

Day 1


Bienvenue en France!

Your trip starts at Nice Airport where our staff will meet you before the short transfer to the 5-star Anantara Plaza Hotel in Nice, perfectly situated on the Place Massena just 100m from the Finish Line of the final stage! After checking in and lunch at the hotel, enjoy a free afternoon to discover this wonderful city, or just hang out by the Mediterranean at the hotel’s private beach.

Day 2


LIVE Race-Viewing: VIP Team Paddock and Departure Village in Nice

As an Official Tour Operator, we have secured a visit of the ‘Team Paddock’ and Departure Village stage start. We don’t have far to walk as Nice hosts the Departure Village which allows you to see sponsors and gain VIP entry, perhaps even meeting past winners of the race. Then, it’s onto our favourite (Covid allowing) we will gain access to the paddock. It is where all the cyclists and teams congregate pre-race. The area offers fantastic opportunities to get up-close to the riders and Tour celebrities, as well as getting a first-hand view of the inner workings of the Tour de France. It’s one of the most popular moments on our Spectator Trips!

Day 3


LIVE Race-Viewing: The Final Stage TT in Nice

It’s time to celebrate in style by witnessing the Final Time Trial from Monaco to Nice. Your hotel is situated just 100m from the Stage Finish Line on the Place Massena and the standard trip package comes with access to the Massena Grand-Stand seating directly opposite the Finish Line. Enjoy a thrilling finish to the 2024 Tour de France!

VIP Upgrade: please contact us if you’d like to upgrade to the VIP Salon Baie des Anges (subject to availability).

Stage 19

Embrun > Isola 2000


The menu for this ultra-mountain stage could well make you dizzy, but it’ll also whet the appetite of the very best climbers. Although the stage is less than 150km long, the riders will climb above 2,000 metres on three occasions, the biggest test the climb to the summit of La Bonette, the highest road in France at an altitude of 2,802 metres. Its 360-degree panorama is breath-taking.

Stage 20

Nice > Col de la Couillole


The Paris-Nice regulars will be racing over familiar terrain, but that won’t make things any easier if the contest for the Yellow Jersey is still raging, particularly over such a short distance. Battle could commence as early as the climb to the Col de Braus. There will then be no respite on the climbs of the Cols de Turini, de la Colmiane and finally de la Couillole, the final ascent extending for 15.7km at an average gradient of 7.1%. We’ll all be holding our breath!

Stage 21

Monaco > Nice


Everyone remembers the last occasion the Tour finished with a time trial, when Greg LeMond stripped the yellow jersey from the shoulders of Laurent Fignon on the Champs-Élysées in 1989, by just eight seconds. Thirty-five years on, we can but dream of a similar duel, involving two or three riders, an authentic athletic confrontation whose outcome would determine the final podium of the 111th edition, and the first to finish far from its familiar Parisian setting, the ultimate finale destined for Place Masséna, just a few pedal-strokes from the Promenade des Anglais.
