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...

Entrance to the mall is not via the obvious glass pyramid of the louvre museum. Either from Rue de Rivoli or either side and down stairs in Jardin Des Tuileries on the approach to the Louvre plaza. Once inside, there's a great selection of shops and food outlets all set in a very grand environment.

We went to La Comedie Francaise performance of Cabaret Georges Brassens in Studio-Théâtre, which is located in this mall. The mall contains the type of stores one expects to find in a mall, but I must say we didn't browse. This mall stands apart because of the inverted pyramid, access to the Louvre, and La Comedie Francaise.

Visited the Apple store to share their charging stations and wifi. Starbucks saved me with their sugar rush that is a mocha coconut frappachino, so so good! Then we found the Pylones store! Oh man I love that place and all of its oddities. €100 donation to Pylones then we found our american lunch stop of McDonalds. My girls were... More

Very Grand... I did not know anything about this place, but discovered on the way into Musee du Louvre. A shopping centre and within it a very much needed Star Bucks where we stopped off to quench our thirst after searching for the Mona Lisa! I could not write this review without mentioning the best toilets I have ever visited... More

My husband waited in line and it took them a half an hour to serve 8 people. The food was not the usual standard. The manager had no managerial skills. Nobody knew what they were doing leaving the customers frustrated and the one line stationary most of the time. Really bad service.

The food rest there all day probably,and some places were closed, probably everything eaten, and some where still open, and had lots of untouched food. The service is terrible slow -... More

Carrousel du Louvre is an underground shopping mall with brand name retail shops, restaurants and direct access to the Musee du Louvre. It is connected to the Palais Royal Metro station and provides the quickest access to the museum for those who wish to avoid the long queues which form outside the Pyramid du Louvre (main entrance). It is also... More

This is an easy entrance to The Louvre featuring some lovely moderate to high end shops. The restrooms are worth the small charge - absolutely immaculate. The staff is outstanding and gave us extraordinary help with a lost item. Well worth a visit.
