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).

We didn't have time to go to the Louvre, so we visited the mall with the upside down glass pyramid, the statues, and some of the wall in a quick visit for free. I was surprised that the bathroom in the shopping mall had a charge to use.

Its a tiny mall with some cute shops. They have a big Apple store, several fast food restaurants, several patisserie... They also have a luxury Printemps department store with brands like Gucci, Fendi, Saint Laurent... Many luxury watch brands are also there. It is a nice place to have a warm walk inside.

The shops at this underground area are aimed at monied interests, but it's inside and at the Louvre entrance so what's not to like about that? Here, as with all public places in Paris, one pays 1/2 Euro to use the toilet. It's collected by people who don't seem to do anything except take money, and that in mostly a... More

It's a mini mall with some interesting shoppes (yay, Pylones) and a decent food court. It was beautifully decorated for the holidays. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it, but probably can't be avoided if you're going to be at the Louvre.

Unlike the Forum des Halles. this mall is lovely! The stores are high quality, there are open spaces, lovely places to stop, eat, and shop. There is a nice diorama of the mall and a display of the original stonework. The displays are very pretty. The shopkeepers friendly. We just happened to fall into this mall and were glad we... More

During our most recent visit to Paris, we visited this long shopping mall located underneath the Louvre, on a Thursday evening. It was home to an interesting array of shops. Amongst the shops were outlets selling gifts, fashion, jewellery, watches, electronics and confectionary. There was also a food court with a large variety of food types ranging from fast foods...

We came here the first time totally by mistake and now it's one of our "must stop" places in Paris. On top of being a much easier way to go into the Louvre, the caroussel also offers plenty of restaurants (all reasonably priced - French, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean ...) and good, clean bathroom facilities. Its also a... More

Go to the Carrousel du Louvre mall beneath the Musee du Louvre, 99 Rue Rivoli, Paris. I was looking for ear pods for my iPhone and there is an Apple Store there. It took me a while to figure out that it was under the museum. Fantastic!
