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."

  • Excellent underground shopping center, through which you pass to the Louvre a great gift shop from the Louvre, the great Apple store, Fragonard perfume and my favorite tea shop Frere Mariage. all souvenirs for home on the way back from the Louvre.

  • With multiple luxury shops, stores type Apple or Kusmi Tea, the Carrousel of the Louvre is an underground city, a gigantic Mall street of Rivoli beside the Palace of the Louvre with plenty of rooms of exposure used for example for the Grand Tasting Bettane & Dessauve

  • The Carrousel du Louvre is a shopping center, located just next to the Louvre. Characteristic is a glass pyramid construction that upside down in a hal in the corner, it seems like the reverse of the glass pyramid as entrance of the Louvre itself, but in slightly smaller form. We quickly walked by this shopping center. It does not so much for: some chain stores like you do in each city.

  • 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
