After a walk through the park we decided to jump on the ferris wheel. From an attraction, it was interesting, they funneled you in and out - keeping each cart full and the line moving. There isn't much room to look both ways - so...More

Stumbled across this on a rainy evening and I'm glad I did. There was no queue at that time. Desk staff were not the friendliest but the two operators were approachable and humorous. They were even kind enough to give us an extra rotation. Well...More

Really well organised and a wonderful way to see the city. Whether by day or by night, Paris always has awesome views. Book in advance to avoid too much queueing, but of course, you'll still have queue a little anyway.

Quite touristy, but very close to metro subway, the Lourve museum and a fun fair for kids. A 10 minute ride and cash only.

The giant wheel, while not being particularly attractive is still easy on the eye, especially if views from the Tuileries gardens.

12€ and you get a couple of rounds on this ferris wheel. It's slow paced and intended towards enjoying the views. You can see the Louvre through the tuileries garden on one side and Arc de triomphe through champs elysees on the other. Place Dell...More

OK, OK, yes, it's touristy, but so what? It is a great way to see all of Paris at once. You get a few turns of the wheel so can get several different views. Only thing, it's hard to get good pictures because the bars...More

From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,

spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or
