Enjoy our included, full day in the ‘city of lights’. Paris is the capital of France and covers an area of 105 square km. Paris is renowned for its buildings and history, so why not visit some of them such as the Louvre home of the Mona Lisa painting, the Eiffel Tower which is over 323 meters high, the Notre Dame Cathedral which features in the famous Victor Hugo novel, the Basilica of Sacre Coeur which is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Arc de Triomphe where the name of the famous race comes from. You can explore the city independently or come and join our optional, guided sightseeing tour which is a great way to learn about the major sights and we also offer our optional cruise along the River Seine which gives a new perspective on this amazing city. In the evening we return to the hotel and you have time to relax before the excitement of the race tomorrow.
Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe
Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe
Enjoy one of the most prestigious days on the racing calendar culminating with the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe was first ran in October 1920 and has continued to be a popular event in every race goers calendar. The race is a group 1 flat course with turf, open to thoroughbreds aged three years and older. The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe to date has one of the largest prize fund of all the flat races on turf. The race is traditionally ran at the Longchamp* course which covers a distance of 2400 meters and located on the banks of the River Seine. Today you will have a general admission ticket for the race day with transfers included. So get your race card and binoculars ready to follow each of the races and hear the crowds 'roar' willing their horses and jockeys on down the last furlong and to the winning post.
*Due to redevelopment of Longchamps, 2017's race is at the beautiful Chantilly course. Chantilly's main course is the same distance as Longchamps and set next to the 65 hectares of Chantilly forest. For 2018, it is expected to take place at Longchamps.

The Restaurant Cape Sud serves fine Mediterranean themed and traditional French cuisine, and the hotel also offers a lift.
We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
