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).

Nice if you are near

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...

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!

Shopping mall underneath the Louvre that provides a basement entrance to the museum, slashing your waiting time. You can bypass the ticket buyers' line to use the automated ticket machines that everyone seems to ignore. The Carrousel's food court is functionable and has good selection.

The Carousel du Louvre is like a miniature Brandenburg Gate. Very attractive structure. We walked through it as we approached the Pyramide from the Jardin des Tuileries

Awesome experience. Included on the museum pass. We did think there was an elevator but it was out of service. We are in good shape, but the steps worked us out!!! Once we got to the top, it was totally worth it. Without a doubt, the best view in Paris. It really gave us a great overview of the city... More

This underground shopping mall was fun to find when visiting the Louvre. Lots of interesting shops -- including a wonderful Fragonard Perfume Shop. Look for the upside-down pyramid for super picture-taking. Check out our pictures on our travel blog... havesisterwilltravel.com

Good variety of shops and places, use the Rue de Rivoli entrance to avoid the long queues at the Pyramid.
