Next June/July I will be on my Honeymoon, mostly in Italy. I have talked my Fiance into extending the trip by a couple of days to visit Paris to see the start of the Tour. I have a couple of questions:
The organizers have stated that the TOur will start in Paris. Is this definite?
Will is start on Saturday, July 5th?
What can I expect to see?
Do they have any special events associated with the start of the race?

Any info or past experiences would be greatly appreciated. Also any ideas of smaller towns in Italy to visit would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Greg

Regarding the tour: I saw it pass through Dijon several years ago, and while it was awesome to see, I very much wish I had seen a mountain stage or 2. While the flat stages are neat (they just go by so fast, after you've waited for 5 hours!!), the mt stages are AWESOME.
