Before Paris 2024, the Office du Tourisme, the Solideo and the Plaine Commune propose – starting from Saturday July 25, 2020 – free guided tours of the upcoming Athletes Village. A good way to discover the issues about the organization of the Olympic Games.

It is one of the biggest works for the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympics. Starting from July 25 and until September 19, the Solideo (the company entrusted with the Olympic works) and the Office de Tourisme de Plaine Commune Grand Paris team up to offer free guided tours of the future Athletes Village of Paris 2024 Olympics.

For summer 2020, the neighborhood, still in construction and set between Saint-DenisSaint-Ouen-sur-Seine and Île-Saint-Denis, is opening to curious visitors. To make it a smooth operation, the Office du Tourisme Grand Paris entrusts students from the Paris 13-Villateneuse university – training to become professional guides and cultural mediators – with the tours.

By the way, the village said to be delivered for the upcoming Olympics hides many surprises. You will learn that this eco-neighborhood is sustainable, innovative and can house – from 2025 – at least 6,000 new residents and as many employees and storekeepers. Moreover, Paris 2024 ambitions are clearly set, which will enable you to understand the stakes hiding behind the Parisian Olympic project. During the Olympic Games, 12,000 athletes and staff will stay in the neighborhood.

Of course, because of the health crisis, the organization of tours has to maintain the governmental guidelines. Therefore, each visit can welcome maximum 10 people. Between July 25 and September 19, tours are held on Saturdays at 10 a.m., excluding August 15 as it is a public holiday. Other tours are schedules on Wednesdays but precise dates have not been announced yet. To sign up, nothing simpler, you only have to do so on the Office de Tourisme de Plaine Commune website.
