The Tour de Romandie is a stage race which is part of the UCI ProTour. It runs in the old Romandie region, in the French-speaking part of Switzerlandmarker. It began in 1947, to coincide with the 50-year celebration of the Swiss Cycling.

The race traditionally starts with an individual time trial prologue in Genevamarker and ends with another individual time-trial in the hilly terrains in Lausannemarker. The final time-trial traditionally starts in the stadium north of Lausanne, goes downhill southwards to the Lac LĂ©man (Lake Genevamarker), and makes its way back uphill to the stadium again. Not surprisingly, the winner and several of the top-ten finishers are usually excellent time trialists.

The parcours of the race usually winds northwards towards the Jura mountains and Alpine mountain ranges of western Switzerland.
