Paris 2024 is coming!

As much as we adore Paris for its history and culture, it is prepping for a big change. In 2024, Paris will be hosting the Olympics from July 26 th to August 11th. They are promising an “Olympic ceremony like no other”. For the first time in history, the opening ceremony will not take place in a stadium but will happen within the city, centring around the Siene. This means that an unprecedented 60,000 people will be able to watch the event, many of them completely for free. In addition to the new verve for sport that this will give the city, Paris is also gaining a new permanent structure, the Porte de La Chapelle Arena.

Moreover, following the Olympics 2012, property prices in London where the games took place rose significantly. We will have to watch out to see how the Olympics drives even more attention to this incredible city.

3. Super well-connected

The Paris Metro, similar to the tube network in London, makes travel throughout the city quick, easy and affordable.

Should you ever want to pop out of the city, your journey will be straightforward. Paris is super-connected to the rest of France, and, well, the rest of the world. If you are looking to buy a second home here, then you can be confident that it will be stress-free to get to at any time of year.

From London to Paris, you can get the bus, Eurostar, ferry, or fly. The fastest route, by train, takes just two hours and twenty-four minutes.

Should you want to head to Barcelona, there is a direct flight and train. The train goes from Paris Gare De Lyon to Barcelona-Sants in six and a half hours.

4. Gorgeous green spaces

Even city dwellers need a picnic or jog in the green sometimes. Dating back to the 16th century, Jardin de Luxemburg is now regarded as the back garden of Parisians, it is over 25 hectares of green space, split into English and French gardens. Other gorgeous green spaces include the Parc Monceau and the Jardin de Tuileries. On the edges of the city, there are two large forests, the Bois de Vincennes and the Bois de Boulounge.

5. The food really is as terrific as legend has it

France is famous for having fabulous food, and Paris is, unquestionably, the place to dig into delicious cuisine.

As well as this, Paris boasts of cheap wine that doesn’t taste cheap, chic bars and restaurants, and cute cafes.
