And, to be clear, we’re speaking about the Olympics Olympics (and not the ones in Washington State, USA.) Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock (not a bad idea with this global oven that we live in) you’ll be slightly-to-super-excited about the 2024 Summer Olympics:

Known as the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad and officially branded as Paris 2024, it’s an upcoming international multi-sport event scheduled to take place from 26 July to 11 August 2024 in France, with some competitions starting as early as 24 July. 

To be honest, it needs no introduction, and neither does the host country (Paris.) If you haven’t been able to secure tickets, well . . . join the club, but that might not deter you anyway.

However, how on earth will you get there? You can be sure that the airports will be heaving with attendees, and that will likely also be the same situation for rail. Drive? Hmmm . . . maybe. All of the above?

So, travel is the focus of this post, although we’re always open-minded. Prepare to take notes . . .

…these two intrepid and funny chaps are going to do just that; drive, and they’ll have loads of fun along the way? How about a toboggan ride down a dirt slope? When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Click above.

Cars are fine, but you will really enjoy the city as you discover historic and contemporary Paris by bicycle with your professional guide. From the Place de la Bastille to the Quais de Seine, you’ll enjoy a food tasting at the most Parisian markets. You can also learn and taste all the high-quality products of the region: traditional cheese and deli meat – along with coffee and croissants. Following this taste adventure, become a real Parisian and head for the places where the locals get together and discover the architecture of the Centre Pompidou with the modern Bibliothèque (library) Nationale François Mitterrand. You will spend this tour with a Parisian passionate guide, who will be glad to answer any questions you might have, giving you tips and suggestions of what to see or do during the rest of your stay in the heart of the French capital.
