Description: The Carrousel du Louvre, located right in the heart of Paris, in the first...
The Carrousel du Louvre, located right in the heart of Paris, in the first arrondissement of the City of Lights, is, without doubt, a premier shopping destination. It is open all year long, 7 days a week (including Sundays) from 10am to 8 pm, and is home to a variety of restaurants and more than 40 premium stores including Apple Store (the first Apple Store in Paris) and Printemps du Louvre (showcasing leading luxury brands with top-of-the-range watchmaking on the mezzanine floor). The Carrousel du Louvre is a uniquely designed iconic venue, with its famous Inverted Pyramid, a fantastic architectural feat by Pei (where fans can explore the mysteries of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code or take the perfect selfie to keep as a special Paris memento), its Charles V Hall walls, its Comédie Française studio theatre and its conference and exhibition centre. Culture runs deep in its DNA making it a cultural site to be visited on its own account! The Carrousel du Louvre can be accessed from the Louvre Museum (at the end of your visit when you leave through Allée du Grand Louvre), 99 Rue de Rivoli, the Tuileries Garden (North and South stairways) and also by direct access to the Palais Royal Musée du Louvre metro station (lines 1 and 7).

The mall is very well designed and very clean. It is amazing how it got where it did. This is a good way to get into the Louvre. The lines are shorter and it is inside (under- ground). The stores are upscale and we did make a point of visiting two or three on our way to the museum (and... More

This amazing department store contains the inverted pyramid from Pei, author of the pyramid in the Louvre. The inverted pyramid is famous because of The Da Vinci Code. Also, there is plenty of nice shops and restaurants.

After finding out that the actual Louvre museum was closed on Tuesdays, we spent some time in the shopping centre. It is honestly one of the most clean and well designed malls I have ever been to and had a great selection of shops. We did some shopping in L'Occitane and Maille- we had great service in both places. Finishing... More

This is the main art piece/monument between the Louvre and the Garden. The details on the structure are simply breath taking. If u are under the Corrousel facing the Louvre walk to your left. There is like a "subway" entrance. Very quiet and not too many people going down. Guess what??? There is a side enteance to the museum and... More

No words. They are just bad. Unfriendly, unhelpful - they are all just walking around talking to one another and staring at the iPads. Go to the Apple store at Opera - or wait and go in another country :p

They must be counting on the captive tourist market, as it didn't matter what type of item it was or what store it was in, things were upwards of 75% higher than they were worth. As for the Louvre itself, avoid the long line outside by the pyramid and buy online or go into Carrousel and line up there. I... More

I wasn't impressed here. If it wasn't for the location and the name, it would be another tourist focused shopping mall. Nothing terrible here, but nothing that you can't find elsewhere, probably at a lower cost. Bathroom available for a feee!

It is beautiful so if you are at The Louvre or near it, take a moment to see it. I would`t come only for this though...
