The 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris represent a global event. To welcome the athletes, their teams, families, journalists and thousands of spectators, three Seine-Saint-Denis towns will join forces to build the Olympic Village. While the Village will be the focal point of the public's attention over the next two weeks, it will also have a long-term impact on the surrounding urban fabric: what will be the future of sports facilities after the Paralympic Games? How can they be adapted to the daily lives of local residents?
Tristan Bayle, your guide, will lead you through these recent constructions and tell you the story of the neighborhoods that host the Olympic Village and the mythical Stade de France, the site of sporting celebrations since the 1998 Football World Cup. You'll have the chance to walk on the new pitch before the July wave, and get a behind-the-scenes look at the village's construction phase.
On your marks, get set, go!

Recently opened after renovation, the Bobigny train station is a place of remembrance of the Jewish deportation.
A symbol of France's temporary collaboration with Nazi Germany, the station witnessed the passage of tens of thousands of people en route to the death camps. Anouk Colombani, your guide, will accompany you on this journey, the history of which we know thanks to numerous testimonials: context of the German occupation, focus on the organization of the transport of victims and their arrival in the camps, close links to other deportation stations in the vicinity of Paris (Drancy, Le Bourget).
When it comes to art, Greater Paris stands out for its attraction to street art. Whether commissioned or illegal, street art has the merit of being observed in the midst of urban nature, free of charge and on a daily basis. However, Meuh, your guide, will show you what's so extraordinary about street art, teaching you all about urban art techniques, their supports, their stories and those of their artists. A connoisseur of these techniques, Meuh is the creator of the Beirut Graffiti Tour, which in 2015 promoted Lebanese street art to the local population.
Afterwards, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy a live painting by the street artist Meuh.
You'll never look at street art as before!
