Roland Garros, also called The French Open, is the largest clay court tournament of the year. Because of the slow playing surface and the five-set men's singles matches without a final set tiebreak, it is considered to be the most physically demanding major.

This incredible French tennic vacation experience provided by Grand Slam Tennis Tours has a wide variety of tennis seats, including Category 1, Category 2, and Loge locations in Philippe Chatrier (Court Central), boasting excellent views of all the tennis action. Your accommodation at Hotel Bel-Ami, is situated in the center of Paris in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood between the national museum of Quai d’Orsay and the Notre-Dame cathedral.

Itinerary

A sample itinerary, depending on the package chosen, could look like this:

Day 1: Welcome to Paris
Indulge in “La vie en rose” at the Bel Ami Hotel, in a warm and chic ambiance in which carefully designed lighting, an elegant mix of pastel colors and a huge central illuminated suspension entice you to enjoy the Parisian spirit.

Situated in the heart of Paris, you will love your walks in the chic streets of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district. Have a coffee in the famous Café de Flore, taste the world renowned macarons in the cozy LaDurée pastry shop by the Saint-Germain church, or shop in the luxury boutiques of Le Bon Marché, the oldest French department store.

On your first night you will enjoy a welcome dinner and tour orientation at an authentic Parisian restaurant. You will have an opportunity to bump elbows with past Grand Slam champions, our staff, and other tennis enthusiasts from around the world.

Day 2, 3, 4: Watch and Play Tennis
You will spend your next few days enjoying what you primarily came to Paris for - watching world-class tennis at Roland Garros! From your exclusive seats in Philippe Chatrier, you will have a chance to see all your favorite players battle it out at the second Grand Slam of the year. If you are joining us for tennis on one of these days your next stop will be the Tennis Club De Paris, here we will have the opportunity to play tennis on the “terre bateau” (red clay) surface followed by a Parisian brunch.

Day 5: City Tour
After a good night's rest, you will spend the next day touring the most notable and historic of Parisian sites. Enjoy a guided tour of Paris' most iconic landmarks with a local guide to walk you through the history and inside secrets of the city.

"My experience at Melbourne Park was awesome! I had a great coach and just being on the courts where the Australian Open players train was an amazing and surreal experience. Thank you so much for helping me with my reservations. It was an awesome holiday experience and I will highly recommend it to my tennis friends!"
