What Makes It Special
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).

After spending 8 hours in the Louvre, I browsed the shops of the Carrousel du Louvre, tried two delicious macarons from the “La Maison du Chocolat”, checked out a couple of boutiques and walked out. It was a nice place to cool off on a...More

Begin your day by visiting the Musee de l'Orangerie, which is near the metro, and right at the beginning of the Tuileries Garden. Then stroll across the Tuileries, heading towards the Carrousel du Louvre, taking amazing pictures along the way, with the final goal of...More

Very well designed shopping gallery with a very smart and large choice of boutiques. The place provides a nice relief from the busy streets upstairs.

It was ok. I purchased a bag of Eiffel Tower keychains. 15 for $12. I thought it was a great deal until I walked outside and saw 5 for 1 Euro. I was so sad :( Not their fault I guess, I should’ve looked around...More

The Museum is beyond wonderful. The Carrousel is over-rated. After several hours of history/art overload, we wanted an afternoon snack to refresh. The food court area was messy, dark and uncomfortable as the air conditioning was inadequate. Would not do that again. Just too tired...More

Way.. too.. busy! Absolutely crowded, felt like an ant. Standard elite shops, nothing unique there. Would nót recommend unless you need one specific store that is located there.

This is a horrible place and you should stay away from it! Rude staff, elitist shops and zero facilities. Worst hour of my trip to Paris

I have always recommended entering the Louvre through Security at the back of this underground shopping mall. That’s because, in my experience, far fewer people wait to get in here than at the Pyramid entrance. But when I went to enter the museum in early...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along
Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of
decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined
with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering
window displays. Every other establishment has someone
to open the door for you or park your car. You can
spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or
