Attraction details
Owner description: 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).

I thought it was a misprint that my Hertz car rental location was the Louvre but I was very pleasantly surprised how nice and less money it was to rent from this location. My family flew into CDG airport and took a taxi to downtown Paris (50 euros for family of 5 and all baggage) and spent 4 days touring Paris by Metro/walking. We then took the metro to the Louvre, went underground to the Carousel and easily picked up our car from the Hertz Rental. We also checked out the food court and stores (Apple) It was modern and surreal to be at the Louvre underground. The inverted Pyramid from "The DaVinci Code" was also fun to see. Make sure to get GPS if you drive in France!!!

There is a great food gallery here which has a great selection of foods. Yes not very french but quick, reasonably cheap and pretty decent.

If you have kids take them to the toilet shop for the cleanest toilets in all of Paris. Waiter service to your toilets.

Great place to buy good quality souvenirs

It's modern and clean, but the stores are not very special or unusual. I wouldn't go here for shopping, there are much better places in Paris.

Very expensive. No public conveniences. Only facilities in the whole place are at PointWC which charges 1.50 euros each to have a pee! Cost me 6 euros for a family of four to go to the loo!!! Total ripoff. The operators of a shopping mall should be obliged to provide free conveniences for everyone to use as part of its planning application.
