Watching The Tour de France live is an incredible experience. Before the professional riders come through the towns, an entire parade goes through the town entertaining the spectators. The atmosphere is electric along the route. This event is flexible and allows people the freedom to watch as many or as few stages as they like. There are also packages that offer cycling enthusiasts the opportunity to cycle part of the route either before or after the professional cyclists have gone through a section. The weather in July is superb, lovely long sunny days.
The alpine town of Annecy features everything we love about France: a mountain-fringed lake, geranium-bedecked houses, turreted châteaus and a generous scattering of pavement cafes. Be sure to visit Annecy’s medieval castle and explore the town’s many restaurants to sample fine French cuisine.
Düsseldorf is all about impressive architecture, a buzzing nightlife and a thriving art scene. Visit the Schloss Benrath, a baroque palace set in formal gardens just outside town, shop until you drop along the leafy avenue of Königsallee or marvel at 20th-century art (and an impressive collection of over 100 works by Paul Klee) at the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen (K20).
