Your Ultimate Guide to Tour de France 2024

The Tour de France, the world's most prestigious and challenging cycling event, will be taking place from July 1st to July 21st, 2024, during the Bastille Day holiday weekend, in the beautiful city of Nice. This city, nestled in the French Riviera, is known for its stunning beaches, vibrant nightlife, and rich history. Let’s dive into everything you need to know to make the most of this spectacular event!

A Memorable Travel Experience

As the 111th edition of this legendary race, the Tour de France is taking a historic turn by its first week starting in Florence, Italy, with the Grand Départ, and finishing for the first time outside of Paris, in the sun-kissed city of Nice.

The Tour de France 2024 is not just a sports event, but a cultural extravaganza where you can immerse yourself in the French way of life.

The Grand Finale in Nice

The 2024 Tour de France culminates with its final week set against the picturesque backdrop of the French Riviera and features a challenging hilly time trial as the riders face significant elevation gain. On July 20th, cyclists will ascend from the Promenade des Anglais to the challenging Col de la Couillole.

Due to the official games - the Olympic and Paralympic Games - taking place in Paris, the race will not finish in the French capital for the first time.

The final stage, a nail-biting 35-km time trial from Monaco to Nice, will take place on Sunday, July 21st, following a rest day. This is the first time the Tour de France will conclude with a time trial, adding an extra layer of suspense and excitement. The route will include the challenging climb of Col de la Couillole, promising a thrilling end to the race.

This unprecedented finish, a time trial rather than the traditional sprint, is sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats.
