  • The square and the arc of triumph give eastward on the pyramid of the Louvre and the Tuileries gardens and pools, and then click the Obelisk of Concord West. The place is at the heart of a lovely walk, rich in monuments of all periods. The Quadriga overlooking the arc de triomphe is particularly elegant, it is a copy of one of the Basilica San Marco in Venice. In fact, Napoleon had taken the original to put at the top of the arc, but the France made it to the fall of the first Empire, to settle for a copy. Regardless, the place is very beautiful, between the Louvre and the Tuileries. And to the Louvre to a few tens of meters, the portrait of the beautiful clean is more beautiful than that of the Mona Lisa, the same arc of triumph of the carousel is sleeker, thinner (but less famous) than that of the place de l'Etoile. In particular, its three arches give lightness and elegance.

  • The monument itself is not the most striking in Paris but will achieve a curious picture situandote facing the and photographing what the carrousel falls under your arch.

  • Nice place to walk around before you go outside and there are a lot of shops to stop by. Must see whem you visit Paris...

  • So big. So beautiful. You can't see everything....we challenged that by continuously walking through every floor. We only stopped when we saw crowds to see what they were looking at. Very long line. Don't get in line upstairs by the pyramids, go through the left side entrance that looks like you're going down into a mall and get in the long line there. As a tourist in Paris, patience, patience, patience is going to be your mantra. Just be in the moment and keep fed and hydrated to keep your energy up.
  • Truly a supreme shopping experience in arguable the best art museum in the world. Where else can you drop in to see the Mona Lisa and then check out the latest gear from Apple? Dining is a cut above average and what I would consider to be about average pricing for a decent cafeteria style lunch in France (12-16 euros). Underground parking is nearby.
  • Louvre drove the "exit through the giftshop" to the max. There is a whole mall down there on Your way out from the museum. It's a fine Mall. But it's a Mall. There. One minute You are surrounded by history and art. It's magic. Then comes an unavoidable six lane highway back to the consumer world.
  • BEAUTIFUL! A must. Sooo worth visiting. Expect to be here for an entire day. There is so much to see.
  • A large shopping complex near the scout of the Louvre. They have every brand imaginable with very creative store designs. Visit it even if you don't want to buy again
