World's Coolest Skating Rinks
Eiffel Tower Ice Rink, Paris
Skating doesn’t get much more dreamy than in Paris, where you can glide hand-in-hand 188 feet above the twinkling city—on the first-level observation deck of its most iconic landmark. The view includes the famous golden dome of Invalides, Napoleon’s final resting place. Linger over a cup of hot chocolate or mulled wine with cinnamon at the bar next to the skating rink.
Admission is free, not including skate rental or the general ticket to the Eiffel Tower. Through January 31, 2012. eiffel-tower.com
