Anne Marie (55), who lives in Paris, France, is already very worried, even though there are still eight months left until the opening of the 2024 Paris Olympics.

“The tension in the city is unbearable and suffocating,” Marie told the daily Le Figaro daily, saying she plans to go away to her country home in northwestern Normandy with her husband and children.

Marie said, “Driving and parking in Paris are very complicated, and if the Olympics are held here, it will be hell for residents to get around,” and expressed concern, “There is a high possibility that prices will soar during the Olympics.”

The city of Paris wants the Olympics to be “a celebration for everyone,” but Marie complained that “far from being a festival, it is instead imposing additional restrictions on daily life.”

Camille (30), a resident of the 18th district where Montmartre, a representative tourist destination, is located, said, “Montmartre is already crowded with a lot of people every day, and if tourists flock in, it will be difficult to walk around.”Camille is also planning to work from home or go on vacation during this period to avoid crowds.

According to Le Figaro on the 30th (local time), the Paris Tourism Office expects more than 15 million people to visit Paris during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which will run from late July to early September next year.

The Paris Metropolitan Police plans to sequentially control traffic around the stadium and Olympic venues starting next spring to ensure smooth operation and safety of the competition.Residents within the immediate vicinity of the stadium must also pre-register and present a QR code to be able to move.

Some people, like Marina Camille, want to leave Paris because they don't like the crowded city center, but there are also others who want to stay out of Paris for economic reasons.

These are people who want to make a lot of money by registering their accommodations on shared lodging platforms such as Airbnb.

Philippe (33), who lives between Paris Gare du Nord and Gare du Nord, which has a large floating population, said, “It's a new apartment and I'm hesitant to put my accommodation on the platform for fear of bedbugs, but I think it will be a good way to earn money for a vacation.”

Philippe has not made a final decision, but one thing is certain: he will not stay in Paris.

“My office is near the Trocadero, and the road will be closed during the Olympics,” he said. “I will try to work from home from my parents’ house, which is an hour away from Paris.”

Elise (33), who has a three-year-old child, also said, “If I could escape Paris during the Olympics, I would not hesitate to put my house up for sale on Airbnb.” “I can’t bear it,” he said. 카지노사이트
