We were lucky enough to have been in a hotel right accross from Carrousel du Louvre. We visited a few times while in Paris. Great shops, great atmosphere and entry to the Louvre. My son found the McDonalds very quickly LOL, very clean and great seating area. There was heaps of variety and specialty shops to browse in, and customer... More

The lines to go through Louvre security are usually much shorter at the Carrousel du Louvre entrance than at the pyramid entrance. Just enter the underground shopping center at 99 rue de Rivoli, go down the escalators, walk straight ahead to almost the end of the corridor until you reach security on the left. Once through security, it is quick... More

The Carrousel du Louvre is an upscale Paris shopping center which features dozens of shops, a gourmet food court and 14 restaurants. You can bypass the long ticket lines outside of the Louvre Museum by entering the Carrousel shopping center then take the escalators downstairs to bottom level which will give you access to the Louvre Museum's ticket office and...

Lovely mall with some great shops; something for everyone. We especially liked Pylones, which had animal themed cookware and cool children's gifts. Service was great, and I found some cool presents here. We also went to some clothing stores that only sold french made clothes, and they were quite reasonable. There is also 2 Mcdonalds; one being the awful, greasy... More

"Carrousel du Louvre": a touristic spot is not to be missed if you visit the Louvre Museum. To begin with, there are countless souvenir shops which offer a wide variety of beautifully designed and good quality items. However, the goods sold are usually quite expensive, thus it could be said that Carrousel du Louvre is mainly preferred for window shopping.... More

Alright but no more, certainly based upon our choice of salads both of which were quite attractively presented but not great on flavour and desperately needing a decent dressing which is disappointing as a tasty dressing is so easy to mix. The result were two insipid tasting salads which were not overly enjoyed. To follow and in the quest for... More

I did not really enjoy this mall very much. The stores are mainly quite expensive brands, which is good for some but not for me. The food court was sort of miserable, as you have to pay 10 euro for a small portion of veggie wok (and that was one of the cheap options). To be fair, there is also... More

One of the most interesting things is the entrance to the Louvre under the pyramid. There is less people and you can run away from the summer heat, unlike "upstairs". Also, every first Sunday in the month there are no entrance fees for the museum! Yaaay!

Don't waist your time at the main entrance, near the main pyramid (outside) : The Carrousel is your fastest way to get inside the Louvre (enter rue de Rivoli,99) + you will see the "upside-down" pyramid ! :) I like this one because you can be very close to it, even touch it if you like...
