Paris can boast the title of host city of the Olympic Games three times. The first time in 1900, the second time in 1924, and the third time in 2024. The Olympic Games are being held in Paris again after 100 years. This popular sporting event will take place in Paris this year. That is why this year’s Olympic Games are often called Paris 2024.
