In 2016, the Tour de France – the French call it the Big Loop – will leave from Mont-Saint-Michel. The first stage is 188 kilometres long. It connects Mont-Saint-Michel to Utah Beach.

In choosing Mont-Saint-Michel for its 2016 Grand Départ, the Tour de France is showcasing one of the most beautiful French tourist destinations known the world over. Listed as one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites, Mont Saint-Michel and its bay will offer the racers and spectators an awe-inspiring sea/landscape!

Mont Saint-Michel’s enchantment will no doubt be experienced again in the islet’s fascinating stopovers: the medieval streets, the abbey – a ‘jewel of the flamboyant style gothic art’, the Mont museums and its restaurants.
