Where is the best place to stay for Equestrian at the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics?
Equestrian will be held at the Palace of Versailles which is located about 25 kms southwest of downtown Paris. This gives visitors the option of either 1) staying in downtown Paris near other Olympic event venues and tourist sites and commuting to Versailles, or 2) finding lodging in quieter areas closer to the venue.
Most Paris area lodging options will be found inside the Boulevard Périphérique – the ring road that surrounds the city. But don't wait until the last minute to book your stay… lodging in Paris and surrounding areas will be scarce during the games and command top prices.
If you are looking for a low-key alternative to Paris – check out Chartres. Located about an hour further southwest of Versailles, the town is home to the world-famous Chartres Cathedral.
