Carousels or merry-go-rounds have a history that dates back to medieval times. There are many of them all over Paris and there is nothing like a ride on a carousel to make a child smile.
They are in several tourist places in Paris, like the Place Saint-Pierre in Montmarte, Jardin des Tuileries and Jardin du Luxembourg, but the most beautiful is the Eiffel Tower Carousel on the corner of the Pont d’Iéna and Quai Branly. What distinguishes this colourful carousel with white horses from any other in the world is the fact that it is right in front of the Eiffel Tower, giving an excellent opportunity for photographs.
