It’s now official: Nice will host the arrival of the 2024 Tour de France, on its mythical Promenade des Anglais!
For the first time in its history, the Tour will finish somewhere other than Paris, due to the proximity of the dates to the Olympic Games. This 111th edition should start in Florence, Italy, on 29 June and finish in Nice on 21 July 2024, five days before the start of the Olympic Games.
From the coast to the mountain tops, the Nice Côte d’Azur metropolitan area is an exceptional playground for sports enthusiasts and professionals in a preserved environment. The organisers of the Tour de France have made no mistake in choosing Nice to crown the winner of the 2024 edition!
The last stage of the 2024 Tour de France will not be a traditional sprint on the Champs-Elysées, but an individual time trial. This will be the first time that the Tour will finish in a time trial since the 1989 victory of American Greg Lemond, who stole victory from Frenchman Laurent Fignon, who was wearing the jersey at the time, by eight seconds.
By hosting the 2024 Tour de France Finish, the Nice Côte d’Azur metropolitan area continues to write its history with cycling. In 2020, the “Grande Boucle” had already set off from the Côte d’Azur city.
Nice Côte d’Azur, an extraordinary sporting dynamic
With the success of the Euro in 2016 and the 2019 Women’s Football World Cup, and the prospect of the Rugby World Cup in France in 2023, Nice is now one of the key locations for hosting world-class sporting events. The Côte d’Azur capital will host:
– 4 decisive matches for the Rugby World Cup France 2023
– 6 football matches as part of the 2024 Olympic Games!
– The 2025 UCI Gravel World Championships
With its recent inclusion on the Unesco World Heritage list as a “Winter Urban Resort Town of the Riviera” (July 2021) and its candidacy as European Capital of Culture in 2028, Nice is shining with its audacity and success!
