Starting on July 1st in Düsseldorf, Germany, the 2017 Tour de France will be essentially a discovery of the hilly and mountainous parts of France, i.e. concentrated in eastern France and the south of France.
  During the early stages, riders will visit Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg. After that, the 2017 route of the Tour de France will take them through the wooded hills of the Vosges, then into the Jura mountains of Franche Comté., and the steep pre-alpine hills of the Bugey.
   the Tour then moves to the Dordogne, for a first rest-day at Périgueux, before crossing the plains of  Aquitaine, to reach the Pyrenees. There will be just two days in the Pyrenees this time, including the shortest day's leg of the tour for many years, on Friday 14th, after which riders head north again from Blagnac (on the outskirts of Toulouse), through the Tarn and the Aveyron to Rodez, last visited in 2015.
    After a trip over the high plateaux of the Lozère, one of the most sparsely populated areas in France, riders will take a second rest day at the delightful small cathedral city of Le Puy en Velay.  Next day will take them across the Monts du Forez , the eastern range of the Massif Central, and on to the Rhone-Alpes region, for a day in the northern Alps. After that, it's a day in the Provence Alps and another in High Provence, before a day in and around Marseille, before the traditional final day with a finish along the Champs Elysées in Paris.
