We are less than a year away from the Paris Olympic Games, and it is just the right time to plan a trip to this great sporting event.
If they are still hesitating to go, we have to tell them that it is time to make a choice, because prices increase and that little pig must continue to fill. And if you already have tickets for the competitions, continue organizing your trip!
So on this occasion we share with you some of the things you should know to organize your trip.
What do you need to travel to France?

NOTE: It has been said that by 2024 an ETIAS would be requested to be able to enter Europe, however, the European Union reviewed this requirement by 2025, so for the Olympic Games they will not need to do this procedure.
How to get?
The best way to get to Paris, at least from Mexico, is by taking a direct flight to the French capital, however you can also find options to get to another city on the European continent and then take a plane, train or truck to take you there. to the headquarters of the Olympic Games.
Currently you can purchase plane tickets, so we recommend that you start monitoring the prices and buy when you find the right one.
If you plan to arrive by train, you can check the schedules and purchase your tickets at the page of the SNCF.
The SNCF provides rail links to eight other countries: Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Please note that from November 2023 you can now find trains available for services to London; in January 2024 for services to Belgium, the Netherlands and Amsterdam; and February 2024 for the rest of the mentioned countries.
If you are moving between French cities, you can also check schedules and book your tickets at the page of the SNCF. Reservations can begin to be made from March 2024.

However, by the second quarter of 2024 the official platform for ticket resale will open.
