Shopping Gift & Specialty Shop
Underground shopping mall Carrousel du Louvre is named for two nearby landmarks--the Louvre museum and the Place du Carrousel. Stop here for the food court--featuring several restaurants, including a controversial McDonald's--or to peruse the well-known American and French shops. It's also home to a convention center, exhibition hall, and one of the few entrances to the Louvre museum. The mall also contains a famous skylight, the La Pyramide Inversée (the inverted pyramid), which plays an important role in the best-selling book "The Da Vinci Code."

  • Compared to the first years of its creation, the carousel has evolved into a huge shopping mall-oriented luxury, with always the usual brands in this kind of place. Here, it's crowded, but it still manages to breathe. The historic part gradually was put under an extinguisher and it's a shame. Side defects, as usual this is the wrong sized bathroom (especially near the foodcourt). The line, pays off but at least it is maintained. The inverted pyramid is always her little effect after so many years to give a fine setting at this mall 'image' for Paris. This is for priority foreign visitors, despite the presence of foreign brands not very competitive in price.

  • Great debauchery of all that makes the luxury French with nice shops upstairs of restoration is well supplied, however, ventilation is inefficient and weak air conditioning a black spot for Paris: the toilet dirty and all that for €1 if no addition presented very bad picture of this beautiful place

  • The Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel in Paris is located opposite the Louvre and is adjacent to one of the entrances of the Jardin des Tuileries indeed is one of the accesses to the gardens; like most works in this genre was built to commemorate a military victory, in this case of Napoleon Bonaparte. Beautiful building with a central arch and two side is very rich in sculptures and is aligned with the Central Place de La Concorde and the arc is clearly visible the "Big Wheel", the large Ferris wheel. On the Summit there is a copy of the original bronze quadriga which is in the Museum of the Cathedral of San Marco in Venice. Nice wide piazza that hosts it, albeit not paved.

  • Very nice mall but very upscale. Prices are high, even for the most mundane of items. A paper fan is the equivalent of $15! Food area has fantastic pastries and sandwiches at a reasonable cost.
  • This place has wonderful shops and an amazing food court. It's usually very crowded, so do not expect a quiet meal, and prepare for long food court lines.
  • A very lovely sight to behold, definitely a revisit is going to happen soon. Colorful, bright and great shopping experience
  • One of the most beautiful and spectacular museums I've been to.. Really amazing stuff.. Don't miss the Monalisa of course when you are here
  • A great place to take pictures. This place is very popular for tourists. The structures are simply marvelous. This is one of the must see places in Paris.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
