New Tour de France website launched for Monaco stage  

In less than one month’s time, the Principality of Monaco will have the honour of hosting the final leg of the 2024 Tour de France. In an effort to keep the public up-to-date on all the happenings, from the schedule to the side events, the Monaco Government has launched a dedicated website called Le Tour à Monaco.  

Instead of a finish line in Paris, as is the tradition of the Tour de France, the final leg of the 111th edition of the world’s most famous cycling event will be conducted between the Principality of Monaco and the Riviera capital of Nice. This year, the final stage will also be a time trial, which could be decisive for the victor. 

The change to the route is all down to the 2024 Olympics Games, which will be kicking off in the capital just a few days on from the conclusion of the Tour.  

It is, of course, a very exciting event for Monaco and the French Riviera as a whole, but will require a tremendous amount of organisation for the region, which will need to accommodate not only the cyclists but the thousands of visitors who will no doubt descend on the region to witness the race.  

To ensure that all goes to plan, the Monaco Government has put together a website that will aid in all the necessary planning and practicalities, notably traffic flow, maps of the route and ancillary activities, such as the Grimaldi Forum’s ‘Turner: The Sublime Legacy’ exhibit and information about local beaches and museums, so visitors and residents alike can get the most out their time in the Principality. 

Included in the website are supporting maps, practical details, timetables, transportation options and communiqués regarding the anticipated impacts on mobility within Monaco while the Tour de France is in town. There is also a link to CityMapper for extra support.  

Finally, the site also offers a bit of backstory and history regarding the relationship between Monaco and the Tour. The Principality has hosted the race a full 11 times during its 111 years and has been a stage city six times. It is also home to many professional cyclists who live and train in the region, as well as many cycling-related events.  

The site is available in English, French and Italian. To take a look, click here
