Description

Major global events such as the Olympic Games and World Fairs leave their mark on the cities that host them. From the return of the modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896 to those of 2024, these events not only reflect their era, but also leave an unforgettable mark on the cities that host them. Paris, more than any other city, is a privileged witness.

From the Place de la Concorde to the Trocadéro's breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower, follow your guide to the future competition venues that will be set up here this summer.

Take the opportunity to discuss with Tristan Bayle the major themes that have marked 130 years of modern history: colonialism, disability, the place of women and, of course, political propaganda through some astonishing sports figures!

This is an exceptional walk to be enjoyed before the temporary Olympic venues in Paris Centre are set up.

Tour guide Tristan Bayle leads a number of walks to discover the Olympic transformations around the Athletes' Village, the Media Village and along the Canal Saint-Denis and the Seine.


This tour can be offered in English for groups

Balade historique olympique

Une jolie balade pour découvrir la riche histoire des JO. Une pause de 30 minutes peut être un peu trop longue. Le guide nous passionne !
