Carrousel du Louvre, Paris

3.8
#18 of 308 in Shopping in Paris
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."

  • See the famous inverted pyramid of D'vinci Code "is interesting. I took and I had lunch at the Mall, good options and price. Already the stores are expensive.

  • The advice we received was to go early and it was correct. Even thought it was a Sunday it was very busy. The museum was great and you need to allow yourself a lot of time to get around it all. The ga...  more »

  • Didn't expect to find a shopping centre down here under the Louvre. Unexpected and lovely, designer stores and open space. I loved it, we all loved it. Just wish we had more time to explore.
  • Wow! Great ambiance! Entrance to Lourve (short line) and metro inside. Favorite mall attached to metro hub, trés élégant.
  • Great place to enter the Louvre and miss the normal queues. Bought entry tickets at the souvenir shop and walked straight through bag checks and into the museum. At the pyramid entrance the queue looked minimum 45 mins
  • This place is overrated for me. Giving the size of the place it should be way better than that in terms of it contents. It's big and well designed but empty compare to the museums in DC.
  • Be prepared for a long day with miles to walk but amazing artwork available to view. Make sure you have water on You! X

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.
