Round & Round We Go….

Did you know that there are about 20 permanent carrousels scattered throughout Paris?

This one is in front of the Hotel du Ville….

Carrousels first appeared in Paris in the second half of the 19th century.  Today’s carrousels retain the vintage beauty of the originals. Private concessions are granted to owners by the City of Paris.  Some temporary carrousels are installed during the summer or for special events.

You can find a list of permanent Parisian carrousel locations here.  Or, watch a video of this lovely carrousel above in action here.
