Two Olympic Days in Paris
23rd & 24th June 2017

Our favourite things, Sport (en)

For two days, the centre of Paris is being transformed into a mini-Olympic village, with loads of sports to try out for yourself, and unusual events like trampolining inside the Petit Palais museum and a running track floating right in the middle of the Seine!

Here’s all the info.

This weekend, talk a walk down the Left Bank of the Seine and check out Invalides for something a little out of the ordinary.

To show Paris’ enthusiasm for the 2024 Olympic Games, two olympic days have been organised with presentations of various olympic sports by professional sportswomen and -men, and a selection of sports you can try out for yourself.

There are nine zones and dozens of sports to try out, with most of the events concentrated around Invalides and the Alexandre III bridge (for example, I huge diving board has been erected there), although certain events can be foudn elsewhere like cycling at the Arc de Triomphe, sailing at the pont de Sully and of course the floating running tracks that has to be seen to be believed!
