My son and I will be in Paris during the final TdF stage. I've been before - in 2011 - but that was on a Trek Travel trip, so we had the best spots on the route already blocked off for all Trek groups (which was really cool!).
This time, we don't have that luxury as the TdF is not the point of us going to France this time. Taking into account that my son is only modestly interested in watching the action (meaning, it's not likely we'll be staking out a spot to watch hours in advance), would viewing it from the Eiffel Tower be worth it? I know it's not up-close and personal, but maybe it would be neat to see an overview of the general commotion?
Any thoughts on this are greatly appreciated.
