Carrousel du Louvre, Paris

(3.8/5 based on 360 reviews on the web)
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."

  • Visited in June 2012 & September 2013. Metro station is located inside this area mixed in with many shops and restaurants. Art stores, souvenir shops, clothing stores, perfume stores, etc. Starbucks a...  more »
  • Every time I come to Paris and location in the pay toilet is clean, so always passes through once. Seems different every time in stores, souvenir to show in a short period of time might be better. And Pierre Marconi macaroons. Toilet wc point near the station near the food court than likes. (Was 1.5 euros. )

  • 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
