Paris previews 2024 Olympic Opening Ceremony

The heart of the French capital will host the first-ever opening ceremony to be held outside of a stadium. 

Marking 100 years since the city last hosted the game, the Olympic and Paralympic Games will return to Paris in 2024.

Ahead of the event, which is sure to be a draw for worldwide travel with spectators from all four corners, the destination has previewed its unique Opening Ceremony, which will take place on the quays and bridges of the Seine with a flotilla of boats. Visitors to the capital will be able to spectate the unique ceremony without the need for a ticket. 

The city is aiming to reconnect Parisians and visitors with the visitors, after the embankments opened to pedestrian traffic in 2016.

President of the Paris 2024 campaign, Tony Estanguet, explained: "Rest assured, the Paris 2024 Opening Ceremony will be nothing short of magical. Its staging will be groundbreaking. It will be a ceremony for the people, open to one and all. It will show the world the very best of France. A party like no other… and the world is invited!"

The games will spotlight the nation's heritage and innovations, along with sustainable modes of transport and the richness of tourism in France's other cities and territories- including sailing events in Marseille and surfing in Tahiti.
