When we think of giant wheels, most of us go to the giant London Eye, or even the historic Prater wheel in Vienna. But each winter hundreds of thousands of Parisians and tourists ride the Grande Roue de Paris on the place de la Concorde for great views of the city of light.
There are forty-two heated carriages, including just one for people with limited mobility.
The big wheel is open from 11am to midnight daily until Feb. 16,2014 and costs between 5 and 10€ per ride.
Now, if they could just move that purloined obelisk out of the way for the winter.
