Night view of Paris with the Seine, Eiffel Tower, Grand Palais and the Champs Elysées, as seen from the Grande Roue, near Place de la Concorde (foreground). The 65-meter high Ferris wheel--more currently known as an observation wheel--with thank-the-stars heated cabins is a seasonal attraction usually set up for the winter holidays.
