And with out-of-this-world Official Hospitality and Travel packages available, you can ensure you have a front-row seat to thousands of the world’s best athletes, with exclusive access and events on the side.

In partnership with On Location

The Eiffel Tower is one of the most beloved and recognisable landmarks in Paris – indeed the world. And it provides an orientation point for the French capital. Whether you’re walking under it or riding the lifts all the way to the top, the enormity is still as humbling and electrifying as it was in 1889 when it was built by Gustave Eiffel for the World Fair.

Fast forward to 2024, and the Eiffel Tower is set to star again as a main attraction at the Olympic Games Paris 2024 – a century after the French capital last hosted the event in 1924. Expect this edition to be bigger and better than ever – and full of surprises.

Here’s how you can be part of all the action via Official Hospitality and Travel packages.

Olympic Games Paris 2024 Opening Ceremony

The Summer Olympic Games Opening Ceremony will be held on Friday 26 July. And boy, will it be remarkable. This year, for the first time in history, the spectacular event will not be held in a stadium. Instead, it will unfold along the banks of a river, the Seine. Which means that spectators will have a chance to cheer on the world’s best athletes along the waterway and in the shadow of some of Paris’ most iconic attractions. Yes, the Eiffel Tower will be among them.

Parisian landmarks will host Olympic Games events

The Eiffel Tower will take centre stage once again when it’s time for the beach volleyball to commence. Events will be held under the famous landmark – get set for some pretty epic photo opportunities. Other Parisian icons will also host events: think skateboarding at the Place de la Concorde and equestrian sports at the Château de Versailles. While the competitions remain traditional, the venues are anything but.
