Despite Paris being the official host city, the events are taking place in several other cities across France. Here are the top three you should visit instead to get some Olympics entertainment and taste other exciting tourist attractions.


If you are a soccer fan, then Bordeaux is the place to be. The city will host part of the Olympic soccer tournament with seven men’s and women’s matches, including the quarterfinals. Additionally, you will be able to enjoy countless historical buildings and monuments as well as some of the best food and wine in all of France.


Lille will serve as a host of the basketball and handball tournaments. It is a perfect opportunity to see some of the best basketball and handball players in the world while also taking advantage of other activities and sights in between. The city is famous for its stunning architecture, rich history, and exceptional museums that focus on fields of art, science, and zoology, among others.


For those who want to watch the entire event from start to finish, Châteauroux is a perfect option. The entire shooting tournament of the 2024 Olympics takes place in this charming city, and there are still plenty of tickets available.
