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'd just exited the Louvre and were very surprised to find a shopping centre, with lots of luxury brands, on exit. It was very busy down here and not somewhere we wanted to stay too long. We stepped into Starbucks to grab something quickly as it was better value than the cafes in the Louvre itself.

We went looking for the Louvre Gift shop and discovered this under grown mall. A small food court and some great luxury stores including Printemps and many high end designers. Plus an Apple Store...who needs Champs Elysee when this is so convenient. Only problem was we were looking for the museum gift shop and never found it. Their loss!

We visited the Carroussel du Louvre on two occasions. The main attraction for me and my wife was the Boutique Maille as we loved mustard! There are lots of nice high end shops. That does not mean that you cannot stumble on good deals there though. We did buy several pots of mustard with all kinds of additional ingredients. For... More

We were meeting our tour group here so we walked around all the very nice shops. We enjoyed our stroll around the beautiful underground mall.

I was suspicious about this location since it's located inside the underground mall below the Louvre Museum, so i showed up a day earlier to double check and next day pick up the car in the underground parking. One caveat: when returning the car, the parking closed at 11PM, also to get back to the garage, you can access from... More

Car return at 99 Rue de Rivoli? If only the instructions did not say "99 Rue de Rivoli", it would have saved us a TON of stress!!! We went past it and were very confused since the Louvre takes many street numbers, and #99 is one of the many street numbers it occupies. Finally, we had to ask twice and... More

Although the size is only half of the one at Champs-Elysees, but since I love photography I love every spot in Paris including this Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. Except that perhaps it is better to come early morning during weekdays so there are less people. And there are many souvenir sellers, which probably could be a good object for... More
