  1. Where To Watch Tour de France

    We are arriving in Paris on the final day of the Tour de France (purely coincidental) we’ve thought about heading over and watching the riders come in but have no idea where we would even go. Any tips? We are arriving from London on the Eurostar that morning.

      We watched in front of the Musee d’Orsay which was fine but you only get to see them go by once – and they’re not racing really hard yet. If you want to see them pass multiple times then you need to go to the Right Bank somewhere between the Louvre and Champs Elysees. But this area is very busy and you need to get a spot early. I’d do what we did then retire to a pub to watch the race end on TV – everyone’s watching and that’s a fun atmosphere too.
