Since its inaugural edition in 1896 in Greece, many cities have received the opportunity to host the Olympics, more than just once.

London claims the top spot for having hosted the Olympic Games thrice - the most for any city (1908, 1948, 2012).

There is a tie for the second spot between three cities, all of whom have hosted the Olympics twice. Athens (1896 and 2004), Paris (1900 and 1924) and Los Angeles (1932 and 1984).
