Cycling at Versailles; fencing in the Grand Palais; and beach volleyball on the Champs de Mars, a former training ground for French soldiers.
These are some of the spectacles that might await sports fans should Paris win the race to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
All are included as examples of how the city's best-known landmarks could be pressed into service to help France's latest Olympic push in the feasibility study delivered last week to political leaders by top sports officials.
Arguing that the Games represent a unique opportunity for Paris and the surrounding region to "highlight the quality and diversity of its architectural and cultural heritage", the 42-page document proposes organising the majority of open-air events "on or around the most emblematic sites of the Parisian metropolis".
Hence, it is suggested that the cycling road race could start at Trocadéro and end in the park of the Château of Versailles and that archery competitions could take place at the Esplanade des Invalides.
The study also lists a number of existing facilities, starting with the Stade de France, that could be utilised for a Paris Games.
The list includes Vaires-sur-Marne as a canoeing and rowing venue, Stade Jean Bouin for rugby sevens and the national velodrome at Saint-Quentin en Yvelines, as well as already well-known places of sporting pilgrimage such as Roland Garros and Longchamp.
"One of the basic principles in defining the Olympic and Paralympic concept consists of making the best use of what is already there," the document states.
As already reported, the study puts the budget at an extremely modest €6.2 billion (£4.5 billion/$7 billion), including organisation and infrastructure costs.
Around €1.7 billion (£1.3 billion/$1.9 billion) of this would pay for construction of an Olympic Village.
Final confirmation of whether Paris will again bid for an event it last staged in 1924 is expected by July.
Boston and Rome are already on the starting-line for the race, and may be joined next month by Hamburg or Berlin and possibly others.
The International Olympic Committee is due to choose the host city at its 2017 Session in the Peruvian capital of Lima.
