The iconic clay courts of the Stade de Roland Garros should be familiar to any tennis fan. In fact, the French Open is called the Roland Garros Tournament in France. And here's a secret for Snoopy fans: In WWI, Roland Garros was the first fighter pilot to ever be known as an “ace.” But the courts actually have a limestone base; the main court has seating for almost 15,000.
Within the complex is the Tenniseum, which houses trophies and multimedia exhibits on the history of the Open. Tennis fans will also want to sneak a peak at Court 1, known to French Open spectators as the Bullring.
Métro line 10 is the closest; note that the westbound stop is Porte d'Auteuil and the eastbound stop is Michel-Ange – Molitor.
