Tips for Your Visit

LOCATION

Paris Rive Droite (eastern Paris)

Most of the events will be taking place in the east of Paris. While getting around the city is easy with our metro system or Uber, if you want to be closer to the events, look for lodging in the 4e, 11e, 12e, and 20e arrondissements. Exact addresses will be sent only to participants in the days leading up to the event.

Be aware that many old Paris buildings are not equipped with elevators. Air conditioning in Paris is also rare. There is a wide range of hotels available, from simple accommodations to luxury palaces. Booking your lodging well in advance is highly recommended, especially as the Olympic Games will be held in Paris a month later.

RECOMMENDATIONS

If you're staying longer

If you are visiting the city for the first time, do not miss the classics: the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, the Palais Garnier (National Opera), the Musée d'Orsay… This city is rich in culture and history and there is much to see and do!

If you do want to visit major tourist attractions, be sure to reserve your place in advance. You can check out the Paris Passlib if you're planning on doing multiple visits.
