Underground shopping mall Carrousel du Louvre is named for two nearby landmarks--the Louvre museum and the Place du Carrousel.

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."

  • This is easily accessible as you pass through the mall to got to the museum some nice shops but quite expensive as you can imagine even to use the toilet lol  more »
  • In principle when we went to remove the rental car wasn't for 7 people as we had hired. The similar car was offered in auto range, but not the ability. We had to pay €50 difference per one that met our needs. But the most unfortunate was the experience of the return of the car, since the address that publishing is not exactly the place of drop off. At 99 Rue Rivoli, according to Google Maps there is a Mc Donald. In reality it is a pedestrian entrance to a shopping mall. We had to give several turns around the area of the Carrousel of Louvre, packed in traffic, to poorly parked us to ask the passers with difficulty that involves being in a country with a different language. By chance saw a vehicle plotting with the logo of Hertz, follow it, and we could find the place of return 150 meters farther from the address indicated and without any signpost. When we could contact the staff of Hertz, they said that they always have the same problem, that people complain, but they can not solve... Do Podra Hertz to fix it and not make it pass so bad moment who rent cars?

  • This is mostly a fancy mall with expensive places to eat and a wide variety of shopping. Nothing really stood out though. I would not say to skip it, but enjoy it if you have the time. Be careful whil...  more »

  • 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
