The Arc & Paris

Tour OVERVIEW

A great opportunity to combine a day at the races with a visit to romantic Paris, one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

The Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Horse Race
The Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Horse Race

The Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe classic, Europe's richest horse race, is a true sporting spectacle where you can cheer on the world's finest jockeys and horses, soak up the vibrant atmosphere and perhaps have a flutter. It is such a prestigious event that they say, the 'Arc' is “not so much a race, but a monument".

The 2017 race will take place at Chantilly Racecourse while refurbishment continues at its usual home of Longchamps racecourse.

This unique experience combines world-class racing with the stunning beauty of Paris. On day two, you have a full day to explore one of the world's greatest cities, including its iconic landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. Join our convenient optional full day Paris City tour and River Seine Cruise to ensure you get the most out of your visit to Paris.
