The entire capital is entranced by that little yellow ball! Get ready, and discover how to best organise your stay in Paris for maximum enjoyment of France’s most famous tennis tournament.
The World's Greatest Athletes
Federer, Nadal, Murray, Djokovic, each year they all tread the clay of the Philippe Chartrier court, the famous Central, where hundreds of hearts beat to the rhythm of their services, smashes, passing-shots and reverses. Beyond the sporting performance of the men and women involved in this Grand Slam tournament, the Roland-Garros offers many exceptional moments such as the Legends Tournament featuring the greatest names in tennis from past decades or the impressive wheelchair tennis tournament.
Organise your visit to the tournament
The Vice-Versa Hotel is in the 15th arrondissement of Paris, close to the Porte d'Auteuil. You can easily reach the stadium and its fairways by metro in about 15 minutes, giving you time to explore the shops and terraces as you wait for the start of your game. Be sure to book your tickets for the tournament, which takes place from 22nd May to June 11th, 2017, in advance from the Roland-Garros website – they’re not available at the stadium. You can also discover the neighbourhoods between the Vice-Versa Hotel and Roland-Garros: Parc André -Citroën along the Seine, the contemporary architecture of 15th arrondissement such as the France Télévision building, or the church of Auteuil.
