Tour de France Final Stage

There are 2 main problems when attending the Tour de France final stage in Paris. The first one is speed. You won’t actually realize how fast the cyclists really are until you see them with your own eyes. It would be a pity to stand somewhere for hours on end and capture the peloton for only a fraction of a second. The second problem is the thousands of other curious spectators that want to see the final stage of the Tour de France. You want to see the race, not the back of a stranger’s head! Here are 5 great tips on how to make the most of this sporting event


This year, the Tour de France peloton will do 9 laps around the Tuileries Garden and the Champs Elysées. This is your chance to see the peloton 9 times, not just once! Stand inside the garden, on the edges, facing either the Seine. Because the Tuileries Garden is higher than the street level, you’ll have a nice overview. If you want to be as close as possible to the racers, stand in front of the Seine, facing north towards the Tuileries Garden.

AVOID: thinking of climbing up the Arc de Triomphe as the monument is closed the whole day, or watch it from the Champs Elysées, way too crowded.


The loops of the Tour de France final stage on the Champs-Elysées / Tuileries will start around 5:30pm, but you will want to be at the previously mentioned areas 2 to 3 hours ahead is you really want to get front row seats. The loops generally lasts an hour and a half as the arrival is planned around 7pm on the Champs-Elysées. Each loop (approx. 7km / 4,35miles) takes less than 10 minutes to complete.


Small stepladders or stools come in handy if you don’t want to see other people’s backs, especially if you are a person of small size. The average size of a French man is 1.70m (5.58ft)! You’ll be able to sit or stand on them and have an even better view on the peloton, especially if you didn’t come 2 to 3 hours before hand and have a row of 5 people in front of you. Don’t make it too high though, as other people will start complaining!


Chances are, it’s going to be a hot day, and you’ll need to drink in order to stand the hours of waiting in the crowd. Make sure you bring your own bottle of water, as no one is going to ‘save your seat’ if you decide to go buy a bottle during the event. Should you really need to buy a bottle, you can purchase one for 1€ from a street vendor (illegal but convenient) or for 2.5€ inside the Tuileries Garden.


Logically, all the streets used by the peloton for the Tour de France final stage in Paris will be blocked, as well as many other streets in the neighborhood. With regards to the metro, some exits of the Concorde station (lines 1,12) will be closed. The whole Tuileries station (line 1) will be closed as well. Bridges across the Seine in front of the Tuileries Garden will be blocked off from the left bank starting at 1pm. Make sure you arrive early to avoid getting stuck on the other side!
