The Arc and Paris - by Coach

The Arc and Paris

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

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 2016 race will take place at Chantilly Racecourse while refurbishment takes place at its usual home of Longchamps racecourse. For the first and only time in its history, the main event in the flat racing calendar will take place on the majestic Chantilly estate.

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.
