Went to the Arc meeting this year with my husband. We bought our tickets for Saturday and Sunday at the gate on the Saturday as a weekend package which cost us 26 euros each. I believe that it was a little more expensive than our previous visit 2 years ago but still cheaper than British courses. Saturday was obviously a... More

I have attended the Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe meeting in October for the past 32 years. This year was another great occasion made even more special by Treve becoming the first horse in over 30 years to win the Arc twice.The buildings are showing signs of wear and tear however it is worth noting that Longchamp closes after the...

Second time in going to this famous race, the course is easily accessible & has plenty of room inside. beware this year there were additional charges for sitting on the basic terraces, which we refused to do. But all in all a good day out, you don't get too stung for the price of a beer & most the Totes... More

All went well until we got to the entrance gates late opening, a lot of queue jumping by wily orientals,when all of the extras provided by Quatar were stripped away it was a very basic race course with moderate facilities. 1st race not seen,behind the temp stands and trees, tote failed to declare dividends very quickly, in fact they came...

Visitied for Arc De Triomphe racing... Toilets are awful...NO ATM machines... Wine and beer is hard to find , but pricess are ok. $EUR for heineken and 25EUR for bottle wine...wine was good. It is really dated and disappointing for the raceday. The lack of seating did not help for thos wh odidnt have them.

First the good: it is a high quality afternoon for racing afficionados, culminating in the Arc itself Also can commend the free shuttles from Porte D'Auteil, Port Maillot etc. People still seemed to be bringing in their own picnics which, given the dire catering situation at the course (see below), is to be recommended. Not sure if you can bring... More

I was an the 2014 Prix de L'arc meeting and was very disappointed. It was not my first time going to the Arc but it was certainly the worst. The course itself was lovely. However, all services / catering facilities had huge queues due to a poor infrastructure. I had to spend a majority of the day queueing for some... More
