History and symbols of France

The South region of France is famous for the beauty of its landscapes, its peaceful lifestyle and its authentic culture. Bordered by the Mediterranean sea, it has 8 natural parks and a very varied geology (clues, gorges, lakes …).

The South region and its 6 departments are THE climbers’ paradise with the highest passes in France. Its many picturesque villages have a unique charm that characterizes the South of France.

The numerous bakeries, fountains and shops accessible along the route are part of the French experience and will remind you of the values of the Tour and its first cyclists who have pedaled in these places.
