The City of Lights Welcomes the World

Paris, the city of love, art, and history, is set to host the modern Olympic Games held for the third time in its history from July 26th to August 11th, 2024. The Paris Olympics 2024 promises to be a spectacle of sport, culture, and global unity, all set against the backdrop of one of the world's most enchanting cities. 

Event Venues

Paris, along with its neighboring cities like Versailles and Saint-Denis, is transforming with new and renovated venues to accommodate the vast array of sports. The Olympic Games start in iconic venues across the city, including the newly built Aquatics Centre in Saint-Denis, the historic Stade de France which will serve as the Olympic Stadium, the Grand Palais, and the Champs-Élysées.

Imagine the thrill of witnessing your favorite athletes competing with the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop! The atmosphere in these sports complexes is expected to be infused with the spirit of competition and international camaraderie.

The Grand Event Schedule

From July 26 to August 11, 2024, the Paris 2024 Olympics will be the epicenter of international sports, marking the next Olympic Games. Over 10,000 athletes will compete in 329 medal events. Highlighting the schedule, August 3 and 4 will see a thrilling overlap of artistic gymnastics, swimming, and track and field, drawing massive crowds and excitement. For those planning to catch the surfing action, it's off to Tahiti's Teahupo'o—a far stretch but a breathtaking venue for the sport’s second Olympic appearance.

A Taste of Paris

With Paris expecting 15 million visitors, dining out will be a hot commodity. Securing reservations early at your chosen cafés and bistros is advisable. Near the venues, particularly around the Olympic Stadium, expect many dining options from over 60 concession stands to quick-service eateries aiming to cater to large crowds.

The city will be buzzing with excitement, with live music, street performances, and cultural events as part of the sporting events combined taking place throughout the city. There will also be fan zones where you can watch the Olympic Summer Games on big screens and join in the celebrations.

Dressing Right for the Occasion

The dress code for the Olympics is generally casual, but it's wise to prepare for all types of weather. July and August can be particularly warm in Paris, so light clothing, comfortable shoes for walking, and a hat or sunglasses for sun protection are essential. Evenings can be cooler, so carrying a light jacket is recommended. And, of course, donning your country’s colors or sporting gear can add to the festive atmosphere!

Planning is key to making the most of your trip to the Paris Olympics. Book your accommodation well in advance, learn a few phrases in French, and make sure to explore the city's many attractions, including the Louvre, Montmartre, and Notre Dame. Make sure to get your tickets from an official ticketing website.

Bag Policy and Security

Security will be tight, with specific bag policies in place at all venues. Typically, large bags are not allowed, and all carried items will go through a thorough security check. It’s best to pack light, bringing only essentials like your wallet, phone, sunscreen, and a water bottle.
