Winter time in Paris is always festive, but to experience the city from on high in the heart of Paris, go visit La grande Roue — the Great Ferris Wheel – at Place de la Concorde. Towering the size of a football field, La grand Roue comfortably fits 6-8 people in a single chariot, and offers some of the best views of the city. Situated at the entrance of Jardin des Tuileries, it is also close the the Christmas Market on the Avenue des Champs-Elysees. Open from 11:00 a.m. to midnight, it offers a great experience for famlies, children and, of course romantics. Open until February 19, 2012 for just 10 euro .
