Come in ! Come in ! Come and discover the incredible adventure of the circus in Paris, the leading world capital in the field with 19 stable circuses, built, exploited and - with one exception - closed, between 1783 and today. Come cheer on the riders and trapeze artists, the twinkling and ephemeral stars of a fascinating world. The circus in Paris is a long and beautiful story that runs from Pont-Neuf to the Palais Royal, from the Tuileries to the Daughters of Calvary, from the Boulevard du Crime to the Champs-Elysées, from the humble square to the most elegant walks. A story that mixes acrobats and rapins, noble horsemen and seductive tamers, clowns and clever jugglers! Come in! And you will see the strangest, most seductive and most extravagant shows on Earth.
