Known as the world’s most beautiful avenue, the Champs-Élysées overflows with luxury boutiques, cinemas, cafés, and more. During the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, the Champs-Elysees will be at the center of the action. Take a tour of the neighborhood and discover how it will be transformed in 2024.

The Champs-Élysées is one of the French capital’s top attractions. Daily, up to 300,000 people come to admire its incredible architecture, indulge in a shopping spree, or meander along one of Paris’ busiest arteries. A landmark for visitors and Parisians alike, major events such as the Tour de France cycling competition and the 14th of July Independence Day Parade happen here. During the day or at night, there’s always something to catch your attention.

In 2024, the Champs Elysées will take center stage at the Olympic and Paralympic Games, within walking distance of five official Paris 2024 venues.

Place de la Concorde, situated at the end of the Champs Elysées, will be transformed to host the urban sports competition, including BMX freestyle, skateboarding, and 3×3 basketball. Across the Seine River, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, the Champs de Mars will become the beach volley stadium, and nearby a temporary arena will host the judo and wrestling competitions. Finally, the nearest river banks will welcome the marathon and cycling events, while the Grand Palais, a stunning glass-roofed monument from the 1900 World Fair, will host the fencing and taekwondo competitions.
