2024 Paris-Nice Challenge with Sportive Breaks

Paris-Nice is one of the biggest stage races on the World Tour calendar. It is also called the Race to the Sun as its route takes the riders from near Paris, all the way down to the beautiful Mediterranean coastline of the Cote d’Azur.

In March 2024, the Paris-Nice dates are Sunday 03 March – Sunday 10 March 2024. The race finishes with two stages in and around Nice giving you a great opportunity to visit the Cote d’Azur for some early season sunshine.

Just a few of the climbs around Nice made famous by Paris-Nice and the Tour de France are:

  • Col de Vence
  • Col de la Couilolle
  • La Turbie
  • Col de la Madone
  • Col d’Eze

Paris-Nice traditionally has a final stage that starts and finishes in the capital of the Cote d’Azur. In 2023 Tadej Pogačar launched an attack on the Col d’Èze which was the final climb of the 2023 Paris-Nice and he sealed the overall GC with a victory in Nice on the final stage. He won all three of Paris-Nice’s Mountain stages and the overall victory.

Three options available to catch the pro race:

  1. Full day guided cycling trip spotting the pros tackle the climbs without watching the finish in Nice.
  2. Leisurely morning in town before going over to the Promenade des Anglais to watch the start and the end of the race from the roadside.

More About Paris-Nice

The Paris-Nice pro race is known as “Race to the Sun”. They leave the wintery condition in the French capital, Paris and over eight stages they make their way to sunshine on the Cote d’Azur. This rate attracts the big names in the pro peloton and gives a good indication who might do well in the Tour de France. 

Nice is seeing a lot of cycling in the 2024 season with the Tour de France uniquely finishing here due to the Olympics.
