Hotels-Paris.co.uk - Experience the Tour de France on the Champs Élysées

June 23, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
You do not have to be a cycling fan to know that one of the most iconic images in sport is the sight of the triumphant rider crossing the finish line of the Tour de France at the end of the Champs Élysées.

Parisians line the street every year to witness the franctic sprint finish that sees one rider enter the sporting history books. Frequently, the overall tournament winner is yet to be decided going into the final day, which makes for an even more exciting finish.

Whereas many stages of this iconic race involve scaling daunting mountains or taking on gruelling treks across the country, here the focus is on a flat run to the line. The Champs Élysées is of course an attraction in its own right, with the beautiful Arc de Triomphe certainly a sight worth seeing.

This year, the riders will arrive in Paris on July 24th, so you can enjoy Paris in the summertime alongside this momentous sporting occasion.

Hotels-paris.co.uk has a number of quality boutique hotels to choose from that will allow you to make the most of your visit. Establishments such as Pershing Hall can really make this a visit to remember.
