About the Medals
The gold, silver and bronze medals awarded to competitors at the Olympics and Paralympics represent the highest levels of athletic achievement at the Games. The design of the medals is the responsibility of the host city's organizing committee, and varies with each edition of the Games.
Where to Stay in Paris for the Olympics
The Olympic Village is the where the post-game energy lives, rests, but mostly celebrates. In Paris the Olympic Village will be located in Saint-Denis which is well-connected to many other popular neighborhoods. The Parisian neighborhoods of Gare du Nord would also be a beautiful place to stay.
Eiffel Tower Stadium: beach volleyball and blind football
A temporary, open-air, 12,800-seater stadium located on the Champs de Mars, with the Eiffel Tower as its striking backdrop will host beach volleyball and blind football. Here, you'll want to stay near the Trocadéro metro station. You can consider Canopy by Hilton, a 15-walk to that metro.
Grand Palais: fencing and taekwondo
This architectural masterpiece (built for the 1900 Paris Exposition) is set between the Champs-Élysées and the Seine. Closed for renovations, the palace will reopen for the Games to host fencing (July 27 to August 4) and taekwondo (August 7 to 10), followed by para taekwondo (August 29 to 31) and wheelchair fencing (September 3 to 7).
The Grand Palais is very central so you can stay in neighboring areas and easily take the metro here. For genuine parisian luxury Le Bristol Paris is an icon of French elegance and art de vivre. New this year; triple Michelin-starred Executive Chef Eric Frechon launched a pasta laboratory, Il Pastificio.
