Tour de France 2020

Tour Itinerary

Thursday, 25th June, 2020 : Arrival day and team presentation
Please arrive to our hotel in Nice by your own means or give us your flight time so we can welcome you at Nice airport and transfer you to our hotel. Please advise us of your mode of arrival in advance so we can make arrangements to welcome you at the hotel. The Grimaldi Hotel enjoys an ideal location 250m from the Promenade des Anglais and the sea. Nice-Ville Train station is a 5 minutes Taxi ride to the hotel. Nice Côte d'Azur Airport is just a 15-minute taxi ride from the hotel.

The sporting part of the 'Grand Départ' officially begins with the presentation of the teams on Thursday, June 25, 2020. The team presentation is usually an event open to the public where all the different teams present their team of riders for the Tour de France.
We expect the team presentation to take part this afternoon with the exact location to be confirmed at a later date but it will no doubt be in the centre of Nice within easy reach of our hotel.

Please note that it is possible that special access tickets to the team presentation go on sale at a later date. We will notify you if this is the case and an additional cost to gain access may apply.

Friday, 26 June, 2020
Today you will be able to join us for a guided ride on the roads of the 2020 Tour de France. You will see various teams out on the roads & the whole region will be buzzing with Tour de France related activities. We will support you with our support vehicle on our ride today and our guides will ride with you and show you the best roads and climbs

Saturday, 27 June, 2020 : Stage 1 - Nice > Nice
Stage 1 on 27 July, 2020 is a medium mountain stage over 170km which will start and finish in Nice. The stage will include a finishing circuit where the riders come through Nice 3 times including the finish so being based in Nice is ideal for the best experience today. In the morning we will offer a guided ride in the area which will finish at the Relais Etape. To make today extra special we have access to the lunch time experience at the Relais Etape from where we will watch the stage on TV in comfort whilst enjoying some great live action.

Relais Etape Hospitality
Today we offer the 'Relais Etape' experience. Enjoy a lunch in a comfortable setting with a large screen to watch today's deciding stage. The 'Relais Etape' is an area on the course of a Tour de France stage which takes the form of a small village in a prime position along the route, just a few kilometres from the finish line. We will accommodate a ride to this area for those who are cycling and spectators will be taken directly to the 'Relais Etape' to enjoy the day.

This inspiring package mirrors the excitement of the race and includes:

  • A clubhouse to accommodate all guests

  • Welcome aperitif and unlimited buffet

  • Entertainment and live coverage of the race on a giant screen

  • Champagne celebration of the day's action

  • Tour de France gift

Sunday, 28 June, 2020 : Stage 2 - Nice > Nice
