Tour de France 2024 route: Stage-by-stage guide

The 2024 Tour de France will take place from June 29 to July 21 – and it will be a truly unique event, starting in Italy and finishing – for the first time – somewhere other than Paris

The 2024 Tour de France will be the 11th edition of the great race – and there are few sure things in life: birth, death, taxes and the Tour de France ending on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. But not in 2024. For the first time, the race will finish in Nice – on the south coast of France – instead of Paris thanks to the 2024 Olympics Games, which start in Paris on July 26. 

The Tour runs from Saturday, June 29 to Sunday, July 21, so it was decided that authorities in Paris would have enough on their hands with the Olympics to handle the logistics of another major spectator event.

But it's not just the finish that will be new for 2024: the start – the Grand Depart – will be held in Italy for the first time. The Tour de France is back on Giro d'Italia territory for the 12th time but it's the first time the race has started this side of the border. 

The full route will be announced later in 2023 and details stage maps are usually then released each May online and in the official race program (we'll post links to that once it's available).

We have this page for Tour de France road closure information, which we also update with 2024 information after the 2023 race is done and dusted.

See here for accommodation near the route (again, it will be updated once we know the full 2024 route).

Where to find more useful information: the Official 2024 Tour de France Race Guide is the place to go. We'll include links here when it's available

Stage 1: Saturday, June 29 - Florence to Rimini, 205km

After leaving Florence, the peloton will roll through Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna to a seaside finale in Rimini. There will be some 3700 metres of climbing today. The route also dips into the principality of San Marino, taking to 14 the number of countries that have hosted the Tour.

Stage 2: Sunday, June 30 - Cesenatico to Bologna, 200km  

Say two starting near the station in Cesenatico – the final resting place of Marco Pantani. It's then on to another tough day of climbing on the road to Bologna.

Stage 16: Tuesday, July 16 – Gruissan to Nimes, 187km

An ideal route for a large breakaway, but the climbers will also have a chance to shine.

Stage 17 2024 Tour de France

The 21st and final stage will be contested in a 35km individual time trial from the glitzy streets of Monaco to Place Masséna in Nice. For the first time in a long time, the last stage may not be purely ceremonial. The yellow jersey could be won – or lost – today.

Bike hire for watching the Tour de France

A reminder that if you need bike hire during the Tour de France you should book early. It ALWAYS sells out and it can be very hard to find quality carbon road bikes closer to the time. More info here.
