Tour de france

We will be on the magic leaving Barcelona 7/13. The Tour de France will be relatively close when we are in hard would it be to rent a car to see even a few minutes of the race? Kinda doubt they will offer an excursion to see it....

I'm assuming you are talking about the stage on 7/14. The closest part of that stage (the finishing town) shows to be over 3 hours away from Villefranche. The finishing town will be mobbed, the last 20k of that stage is uphill, you probably won't find a spot for viewing just driving in for the day at any part of that 20k. Plus I believe the stage would be there somewhere close to 4-5pm local time. So to see the race and have a shot at getting back to the ship, you'd have to go further away which would mean dealing with the roads being closed down hours in advance. I am a huge Tour de France fan but I don't think there would be a way to work it out even if someone was standing at the port with the car keys ready for you. Oh yeah, it's Bastille Day so every Frenchman/woman will be home and that's a big race day!
