It is what I would call a Merry Go Round or Carousel not a Ferris Wheel There are older and more interesting ones about and I am not an expert on them but I wouldn`t think that the horses are that old. It is the only one that I saw in the town and small children love it.

What memories, takes me back to my childhood. A beautifully painted carousel in excellent condition and open every day. It is obviously very popular with all age groups. I have never seen one with two levels before, this must be unique.

This is one entertaining way to have a glimpse of both sides of the city and Pont St Benezet. The Chatanueauf de Pape can also be seen from the top. An attraction for the entire family. We went on it when the sun was not so high at around 5 then the next day we went back again for a... More

This is the only two level carousel I have ever seen and my kids enjoyed it immensely. They went straight up to the second level and sat in the dangling swings. If you are an adult, I would take a look at the carousel if you are in the area, but no need for a special trip. It's nice, but... More

Avignon is a beautiful, charming city, and the ferris wheel is a landmark that offers a quick, but lovely view of the city.

We started an exquisite canal trip in Avignon, a charming city, and one of the landmarks seems to be this quaint carousel which operates daily. Surrounded by plein trees which were floating their pollen in April our allergies were responding but it was forgive able.

My kids loved this carousel. It was one of the most beautiful and well maintained carousels we saw during 3 months in France. Go on, buy some tickets. The more you buy, the cheaper the single ride cost gets. We bought 20 tickets at the beginning of our week in Avignon, and visited it with our 3 daughters everyday. They... More

A wonderful ferris wheel that delights grownups and kids. It is always working and although I visited the Place d'Horloge during the day I think this Ferris Wheel must be even more beautiful by night with all its lights brightening. If you are traveling with children, let them take a ride and take a picture of it, it'll be a... More

We kept seeing Carousels in villages throughout France, but none were operating, so it was so good to see this one working. We sat and had a lunch of Baguettes under a Plane tree and watched it go around. The children were all smiles. Positioned towards the top end of the city in a large square with many Restaurants.
