Nice, as host city of the 2024 Olympic Football Tournament, will have the privilege of being one of the stopover towns on this journey across France on 18 June 2024, when the Olympic Flame arrives on the Côte d'Azur.
The Olympic Flame will first be lit in Olympia on 16 April 2024, in accordance with ancient tradition. After a 12-day relay in Greece and a crossing of the Mediterranean aboard the famous three-masted ship, the Belem, it will officially arrive in France on 8 May 2024, heralding the return of the Games after a 100-year wait. This will mark the start of a continuous celebration across France for more than two months, paving the way for the Games.
